Who we are
The Michigan Mars Rover team (MRover) is a student-run, multidisciplinary organization whose mission is to design and build a rover for the exploration of extraterrestrial environments. Our team consists of everyone from freshman to graduate students, representing majors from the College of Engineering and the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. We strive to inspire and educate students about space, Mars exploration, and engineering, and we focus on helping students grow as engineers.
What we do
As a competition-oriented team, our goal is to win the annual University Rover Challenge (URC) at the Mars Society's Mars Desert Research Station near Hanksville, Utah. The competition has gained worldwide attention from academia and industry, and teams from all over the globe come to compete. This year, the URC will be hosting 36 teams from ten countries, and MRover is one of eleven teams representing the United States.
Where we are
We meet throughout the week at the Wilson Student Team Project Center on North Campus and hold weekly team meetings at 12:00pm in 1012 FXB every Sunday. Feel free to stop by and see what we are up to.
