builds and races a new Formula style racecar every year. The team is composed entirely of students who participate at an extracurricular level, strengthening their academic skills in engineering design, technology, and business. The students are responsible for not only design, construction, and tuning; but also for finance,sponsorship, media and logistics, and overall creating a true entrepreneurial learning experience.
UTAT is divided into five divisions to cover these projects:
– Aerial Robotics Division (quadcopters)
– Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (quadplanes + fixed-wing drones) Division
– Rocketry Division (sounding rockets)
– Space Systems Division (satellites)
– Outreach Division
UTAT is committed to providing a venue for all members to challenge themselves and further their development in a competitive and social environment.
The intent of U of T DI is to accomplish the following:
1) To allow students to compete in official local and international Destination Imagination tournaments.
2) To provide students with an outlet to develop their creative problem solving skills, primarily through the areas of technical design, structural/architectural design, theatre arts and improvisation.
3) To develop students skills in technical design, structural/architectural design, scientific inquiry, research, fine arts, music, theatre arts and improvisation.
4) To provide students a means to develop their interpersonal skills and teamwork through team challenges and designed activities.
5) To enable students to reach out to the community, to act in leadership positions and to develop their public speaking skills. This will be accomplished primarily through workshops and presentations delivered to high school and elementary level students, as well as mentorship of high school and elementary level students and volunteering at local tournaments.
6) To create global leaders by providing students with an international experience where they can discover an appreciation for various cultures and styles through competition.
The DI program allows students to develop their creativity and problem solving skills while honing the techniques and skills learnt in class. Students are able to develop their social skills through the team atmosphere of the competition, while, at the same time, gaining hands-on experience in a full design process. Students are able to gain life and work experience through approaching a problem in an engineering manner, while balancing various other non-technical design criteria. It further allows students to enhance their Skule experience by integrating theatre, improvisation, structural and technical design in an innovative and unique way.
Student Skill Development
The founding members of the organization have competed at the Provincial level for the past 10 years and have qualified for International competition 8 of those years. Through mentorship, new team members learn construction and design techniques as well as how to use various tools and materials. Students gain experience in a wide variety of fields ranging from improvisational techniques and public speaking to electrical circuitry and structural design. Students are encouraged to develop their skills and increase their knowledge base in order to best address problems they might encounter both through competition and in real life scenarios. Furthermore, the competition has a ‘no interference’ policy, which means team members must develop their solution completely independently, pushing them to solve these problems on their own.
Students Develop as Global Citizens and Leaders
The elementary and high school mentorship aspect allows team members to hone their public speaking skills, develop their leadership skills and prepares them for future leadership positions. Moreover, the team environment of the competition helps teach students co-operation and teamwork, two traits which are critical to success in any employment. The International aspect of the competition exposes students to various cultures and their correlation with design, creativity, problem solving, teamwork and leadership. The International competition allows students to develop relationships with employers, students and various other likeminded individuals worldwide.

As you may expect, we take concrete, a material normally strong in compression and weak in tension – not to mention really dense, and turn it on its head. When we are done with it, we have concrete that is not only good in tension, but less dense than water! Each year, we design, test, and construct our own concrete mix and canoe design, which is raced against other universities annually.
The Concrete Canoe team is a great way for students to apply the knowledge they gain in the classroom to a stimulating, interactive competition. New members are always welcome; sign up to our mailing list at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Students gain valuable experience in activities ranging from the engineering of the robots to financial management and most importantly, real-world application of their education. We will be committed to further promoting the educational impact of UTRA by organizing lectures and seminars pertaining to university research and the robotics industry as a whole. We are also committed to the community through high school outreach by promoting the fields of engineering, robotics, and the University as a whole.
We build autonomous underwater vehicles to participate at the Robosub competition in San Diego each year.
