MERC demonstrationMERC (Mechatronics Engineering and Robotics Club

The Mechatronic Engineering and Robotics Club (MERC) was formed to foster the creative potential of Engineering students by providing the resources that will allow them to design and build their own projects as well as projects presented to the club through UniSA and Industry. MERC provides a venue for students to interact and share ideas increasing their university social, extra-curricular experience.

In 2014, MERC members competed in the National Instruments Autonomous Robotics Competition in Sydney and placed in the top eight participating Universities in the quarter final round.
