The VEX U (Collegiate VEX) competition takes the VEX Robotics Competition from highschool to the next level for university students. VEX allows for a vast amount of design freedom and enables the quick realization of these designs through the major use of prefabricated parts.

Each year, an engineering challenge is presented in the form of a strategic game. Students, use the VEX Robotics Design System to build innovative robots designed to score the most points possible in qualification matches, elimination matches and Skills Challenges against another team’s robot. In addition to having a great time and building amazing robots, through their participation in VEX U, students get to apply the theoretical STEM knowledge they learn in their college courses, while picking-up many of the academic and life skills necessary to excel in the workforce.
