“The Laureate Award for Excellence in Robotic Engineering” is a contest for undergraduate students enrolled in Laureate Institutions to develop an interactive and intelligent robot. This year’s theme is to design and build a smart robot which has a mission of taking up tasks in “industrial logistics”. Excelling in these contests has already been a legacy for BİLGİ robotics teams. BİLGİ team had won the 2nd place award in Madrid in 2015 and 3rd place award last year in Brazil.
