Members are also encouraged to participate in inter-collegiate robotics competitions, some of which provide opportunities for winners to intern at reputable companies. By the end of four years, the senior members believe that interested students could become well-versed in at least one aspect of robotics such as coding and image processing to name a few.

The session concluded with a display of video clips of previous projects that included voice-controlled robots, chessboard robots and humanoid robots.
