To provide students with the expertise to overcome today’s challenges, become tomorrow’s visionaries, and to keep humanity forever curious.
WHO WE ARE
A group of passionate students building cutting-edge Mars rovers.
Hands-on experience, real-world engineering and science solutions
Our projects require and utilize a diverse range of skills and interests which is reflected in our team’s diversity. MRDT consists of students representing 20+ majors at S&T.
We compete against teams from around the globe, from India, Australia, and many here in the United States.
ENGINEERING & BUSINESS
In addition to designing and building the rover for competition, our team members compose competition documentation, create public relations materials, maintain a budget and procurement system, develop sponsor relationships, and communicate with the university and other design teams. Members of MRDT develop the skills they need to thrive in their future careers.
Alumni of MRDT are working across the country, from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, to Amazon Robotics to Boeing.
