Robotics Camp

Introduction

info-img

The RoboMaster camps, hosted by Shenzhen DJI Technology Co., Ltd., are robot-themed talent training programs that bring together robot aficionados from around the world, offering them research opportunities along with free robot development kits and study courses.

The robotics camps are divided into The High School RoboMaster Winter/Summer Camp and The College-level RoboMaster Robotics Summer Camp.

The High School RoboMaster Winter/Summer Camp is a platform tailor-made for high school students to improve their robotics skill sets and gain hands-on experience. Every year, from January to February and from July to August, DJI will recruit the most elite high school students in the field of robotics, providing them with systematic trainings and professional mentors, and challenging them to cutting-edge research and development projects.

The College-level RoboMaster Robotics Summer Camp is a summer research program tailor-made for science and engineering major college students and robot enthusiasts. From July to August each year, admitted college students will be challenged to a month-long robot development project.

The admission portal for each robotics camp will be open 2-3 months prior to the opening of the program. All robotics camps will be hosted in Shenzhen.
