We Design to Discover.

Mars Rover Manipal came into existence in September 2014. It was the creation of 3 budding engineers who wanted to explore the robotic solutions to exploring Mars. The team started working in October 2014 at Mars Rover Manipal workshop situated in Manipal, Karnataka.

The first team had just 9 team members. Now the team strength has increased to 47 students spread across 5 subsystems and the team has established itself as Asia’s best rover team. The team has not only increased in size but also diversified in its field of work and sophistication.

The team has gradually improved its performance at global level and aims at finishing on the University Rover Challenge (URC) podium.
