VMI and VWCC Student Robotics Team Presentations

Each year, college students throughout the southeastern US compete at the IEEE SoutheastCon in a robotics competition. This year the conference was held in Concord NC near Charlotte, and Virginia Military Institute and Virginia Western Community College sent teams. Students were responsible for designing, building, and revising their robots to meet a list of challenges. Both teams will discuss their design strategy, obstacles through the competition, and how they performed at SoutheastCon.

See an article in the Fincastle Herald about the Virginia Western Community College Robotics Team

The Virginia Mountain Section (VMS) of the IEEE has been serving members in the Southwest corner of the Commonwealth of Virginia since 1949.

We currently have two Student Branches in local universities and colleges:

  • Virginia Military Institute
  • Virginia Tech
and the VMS Consultants Network Affinity Group.

The purpose of this Affinity Group is to share information concerning consulting opportunities, and to make a list of consultants and their areas of expertise available to potential employers.

Anyone wishing to be added to this group, or desiring more information should contact David Livingston,

Information about our Section, the Chapters, and material of interest to our members may be found by selecting items in the left column of this page.
