On the 13th May 2022, the Sydney University Mechatronics Organisation visited Reach Robotics’s HQ for a lab tour and a hands-on robotic arm demo. The talented students visited our lab to gain industry insight, see what we do, meet our team and learn about our technology. The group learned about our production and R&D processes and were able to demo our ROV manipulators.
“Having the SUMO society into our lab is always a pleasure” said Rosie Willett, Partnerships Director. “Our team loved demonstrating the Reach Alpha and Bravo manipulators and answering the students’ questions about our products and technology.”
It was a great opportunity to show off our expanded premises and equipment to the members of SUMO. They toured our offices and were shown the Production and R&D departments in detail including our testing tank and inhouse ROV fleet – the SAAB Falcon and SRS Fusion vehicles. The students were able to experience an innovative and dynamic lab environment first-hand, with our talented engineers acting as guides.
Reach Robotics is proud to be supporting the future of engineering in Australia. We have sponsored SUMO since 2021 and look forward to continuing the relationship in the coming years. We host seasonal summer and winter internships to help foster young talent and often use our internship programs as a launch pad for graduate careers.
Reach Robotics also sponsors the UOW Women in STEM Society and the USYD Rocketry Team. If you’re a uni society looking for sponsorship, please email [email protected] with details of the partnership.
