Support Novice Engineers and Change the World!
Texas A&M International University's (TAMIU) Systems Engineering is a field of constant improvement. All new technological advancements which have changed the world were born out of the mind of a novice engineer.
In the border town of Laredo, TAMIU is home of the mighty DustDevils. Populated mainly by Hispanic community, TAMIU offers students the opportunity to enhance their university experience through a variety of student organizations. Among the engineering organizations exists the DustyTRON, DustySWARM, DustyQuad and DustyMOTOR. Each with team members consisting between 6 and 13 undergraduate students pursuing a major in Systems Engineering.
Our teams demonstrate engineering skills by designing either a mining robot, a swarm robot, a drone or a race car. Each with the hope of encouraging the youth of Laredo and surrounding communities to pursue science, technology engineering or mathematics fields and more so, to make a huge impact on today's society.
The TAMIU teams have been the only Texas teams to participate in the NASA Robotic Competition, and NASA Swarmathon Competition and the under the team names: DustyTron, DustySWARM and hope to participate in this year's Formula SAE Competition.
"We as future engineers need your help in order to develop and make our ideas a reality!"
By supporting the TAMIU Robotic Teams you will lessen our financial burden which will allow our team members to focus on the most important aspect of the project, building. All donations will be utilized to improve our understanding of the fields of engineering, as well as immerse ourselves in the fields of robotics and multi-rotor drones. Gifts will be used strictly for materials to build robots, drones and a car and to help alleviate travel costs for our teams to compete and represent TAMIU and Laredo. Each project has its own unique requirements whether that be in terms of knowledge or financial costs. which range from $3,000 to $50,000.
"With your assistance, we can worry less about raising funds and concentrate more on developing our projects."
The ultimate goal is to win and inspire curiosity for future engineers.
