Students of Saveetha Engineering College represented India in association with ROBOIN, the Robotic Training Institute, and have won the ‘World Championship’ title in the ROBOCUP 2010 competition held from 19th June, 2010 to 25th June, 2010 at Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre, Singapore.

The Robocup 2010, widely known as the Olympics in robotics, was held in Singapore where the team members of Saveetha Engineering College represented India and competed in Rescue B and Dance League with 49 countries.
In Rescue B, the team managed to capture the 11th position. In Dance League, the team had three Lego Platforms and one Bioloid Robot.
The Lego are designed to appear like girls dancing with Bioloid, and after many rounds of performances the team was finalised for the Super Team Finals among the other teams.
In the finals, the Indian team re – assembled all the robots and changed the appearance of every robot.
Commenting on the achievement, N.M. Veeraiyan, chancellor, Saveetha University, said, “Engineering education can no longer remain theoretical.
Students have to be inspired to apply what they learn in the classrooms and blossom into creators of innovative ideas and products. Students of Saveetha Engineering College have achieved exactly the same.”
Jaishankar, proprietor, ROBOIN, said, “We are happy not only because of the Super Team World Championship but also for making other countries to look at India and Indians as pioneers in technology.
It gives us immense pleasure winning the title by competing with very strong teams from USA, Germany, Japan, China, and other countries.”
