The RoboMaster University League is open to universities around the world. As long as you love robots and hope to show your talent and wit, you can apply for registration!

Starting a team

Participating teams should be affiliated to universities, gathering students from mechanical, electronic, control, software, computer, publicity and other related majors to form a research and development team. Participating universities must be full-time junior, undergraduate and postgraduate universities. Participants must be junior college students, undergraduates, postgraduates, or doctoral students enrolled before August 2021.
Number of participants per team: 2-12 (depending on the specific challenge)
Note: In principle, only one team in the same school is eligible to participate in one challenge and no intercollegiate teams are allowed.

Register for the competition

Login to the RoboMaster website and click the “Registration Center” to complete the registration of the personal and team information from 12:00 (Beijing time) October 15, 2020 to 18:00 (Beijing time) November 22, 2020. You can choose to create a new team or join an existing one. You can freely select a site and if the selected site is full, the Organizing Committee will negotiate and adjust the site according to the location of the university after the registration period.

Get support

Material Discount Support: Participating teams can purchase the materials required for the competition at the educational discount price, and can be exempted from the shipping and customs duties. Teams that meet the criteria can also enjoy an additional limited discount on the Standard kits. For more details, see RoboMaster 2021 Instructions for Purchasing Materials.
Participant Support: The RoboMaster Organizing Committee will provide overall support to participants, including team project management, commercial affairs, promotion and technological research and development. For more information, refer to the RoboMaster Training System, including the RoboMaster Participant Training GuideR&D knowledge basecourse salonsopen source materialsintramural challenges(The above content is temporarily only available in Chinese.). It covers most of the knowledge that a team needs to know from registration to final competition for teams to quickly understand the event and get started.

Technical assessment

In the research and development stage, participating teams must take part in the Technical Assessment by submitting videos, pictures, documents, etc. at the specified time to show the progress of preparation to the Organizing Committee.
The Organizing Committee will decide whether the participating teams are qualified for the competition according to the progress of robot development embodied in each round of technical assessment. Additionally, teams that pass each round of technical assessments on time will receive further material discount support from the Organizing Committee.
For technical assessment specifications for Tier-1 and Tier-2 teams, see RoboMaster 2021 University League Participant Manual

Obtain qualification

Tier-1 teams and tier-2 teams that have performed well in the Technical Assessment will be qualified for the RoboMaster University League.

Q1: What teams are suitable for the RMUL?

A1: Due to its relatively simple rules, fewer robots required and multiple competition sites, the RMUL is a good choice for start-up or newly-formed teams. The competition mode of RMUL is the same as that of RMUC. Teams that are intended to participate in the RMUC in the future are recommended to register for the nearest site of the RMUL and accumulate scores according to their competition results. Teams in the front rank are directly eligible for the Regional Competition of RMUC in the next season.

Q2: How to obtain the official information released by the Organizing Committee?

A2: The Organizing Committee will update the important information on the official RoboMaster website and the official forum.
