SolidWorks supports many robot events around the world. When the SolidWorks EDU team gets great models, images and stories – we like to share. WPI was the first school in the US to offer an undergraduate program in Robotics Engineering. Mixing mechanical, computer science, controls, electrical engineering with society, the program has risen to be recognized amongst some of the best engineering schools in the world.
This images was created by WPI students Craig DeMello, Eric Fitting, Samson King, Gregory McConnell, Michael Rodriguez.
