2021 Registered Teams - World Championship Qualifiers are indicated with an ORANGE map pin

The MATE ROV Competition is a truly unique robotics program. Our reach is all-inclusive: from elementary through university, MATE teams are comprised of students from every age group. We're not cost-prohibitive: robots can be built on a very small budget and still be highly competitive. And we're real-world driven: all of our missions are based on real tasks and challenges faced by the marine industry today.
