Robotics Consortium Showcase
An Academia/Industry Consortium on Robotics and Related Technologies
June 07, 2017  ·  Gates Dell Complex

We invite you to join us to learn about UT's newly launched Robotics Consortium. Much of the most exciting research surrounding robotics can be found in our universities, but there is a gap between the academic researchers who are developing these new technologies and the industrial engineers who will put them into practice. To help close this gap, UT Austin is launching its new Robotics Consortium, an academia/industry partnership that will give companies access to the latest robotics research from across the university as well as enhanced access to recruit graduate and undergraduate students in robotics and related fields. 

Please note: Graduate student RSVP's at this time are not guaranteed as we have reached capacity for this event. We will confirm with you early next week regarding your attendance.
