About us

ABU ROBOCON was first started in the year 2002.To represent India at international level, national level competition is held every year at Pune in the 1st week of March.

ROBOCON is the biggest international robotics competition in Asia-Pacific region. The magnitude of the competition can be judged from the fact that only one team from a country is allowed to participate, with the host being allowed to field 2 teams.

SFIT first participated in the competition in the year 2009 with the initiative of Eric D'Souza, Nimroz Maknojia and Jaison Joseph under the guidance of Mr. Pramod Shanbhag(HOD-INFT) and Mr. Vaqar Ansari(Asst. Professor - EXTC).

Since then the SFITians have never looked back and have been improvising on the Bots with every year of participation. In their years of experience, the team has scaled new position and has been considered as a worthy opponent in the competition.

For us every problem opens up new dimensions for learning, which we use constructively in succeeding tasks.
