Students from the Florida Tech student chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers attended the IEEE SouthEast Conference and Hardware and Ethics Competition in Norfolk, Virginia, where they faced teams from 45 other universities in the southern region in the hardware and ethics competition.

The competition’s challenge was to build an autonomous robot that can traverse a field containing obstacles and pick up blocks of different types, moving them from their drop-off point to their respective destinations.

The Florida Tech team won first place.

The team also won honorable mention in the competition for the most exemplary student branch.
