And the winner is ... !

On May 14, students of the Mechatronics Department at the University’s Issam Fares Institute of Technology put their competencies to the test to see who will win the acclaimed Robocup championship. The race included seven different robots that were built and programed by the students under the supervision of their instructor Mr. Rabih Nachar as part of their curricular program. The race has put to the test the students’ knowledge of Arduino technology coupled with Gray Scale and Ultrasound Sensors. 

Students and faculty members at the institute in the Akkar campus gathered to cheer the participants on that sunny spring day; the stakes were high as the competition took place under the careful eye of Dr. Elias Khalil, the director of the institute, and Dr. Rodrigue Imad, chairman of the Mechatronics Department. After an intense challenge,the winning team was announced with great difficulty as the participants showed extremely close results. 

The first prize was awarded to the team of Mr. Jonathan Abdallah and Mr. Dany Daas while the second place went to Mr. Elia Karam and Mr. Ouday Dandal. Dr. Khalil distributed the trophies to the winners and announced that a final challenge will oppose the winners to the students of the main campus and the ultimate prize will be awarded to the winner.

Until then, students from both campuses are working day and night to optimize their robots and increase their efficiency as the winners of this prestigious event will be awarded unmatched glory among their peers.
