The Laureate Award for Excellence in Robotic Engineering

The Laureate Award for Excellence in Robotic Engineering is a contest for undergraduate students enrolled in Laureate Institutions to develop an interactive robotic system to welcome, guide and provide multimedia presentations to visitors at any Laureate campus. Consistent with the theme "Get to know my Laureate Institution," the robot should guide the visitors through their campus and share the relevant and important background and facts about their institution in a compelling manner.

The Contest consists of a Phase I Conceptual Design and Project Proposal, from October 1st through December 3rd 2013, to develop a project scope, plan, and budget and a short video to showcase "Why my team will participate in this contest?" and Phase II Intelligent Device, from January 7th through April 18th 2014, to create the robot, an intelligent host device.
