Federally Chartered Degree Awarding Institute Recognized by HEC
Team from Center for Advanced Studies in Engineering, secured the first position in one of the world’s largest
underwater robotics challenges – SAUVC held in March 2017 in Singapore. SAUVC is famous for providing
students with the opportunity to learn about the design of robots which can automatically navigate underwater
and perform assigned tasks. The event is hosted by IEEE Singapore chapter at Singapore Polytechnic. This is
the first time that any Pakistani team has participated in this prestigious event. Fourteen teams from eight
countries including USA, China, India, Russia, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore participated in the event.
Pakistani team, apart from sharing top position with Russia, also bagged Best Social Media Campaign award.

Various teams from CRG have the privilege and honor to win multiple titles at Pakistan’s largest robotics
competition, i.e., NERC. From 2009 to 2011, CRG has bagged a hat trick of winning the best team award along
with numerous other positions and awards.
Robosprint is a national robotics competition that SS-CASE-IT organizes in collaboration with other universities
all around Pakistan. The competition is based on the concept of friendship and knowledge-sharing. A team of
mentors at CRG tours every university of Pakistan from where a team has registered for the event and helps
the team members with technical assistance. A team of students is also assigned as team assistants to all the
teams and offer facilitation whenever required. These steps resonate into a culture of a national collaboration
to realize the dream of a progressive and technologically aligned Pakistan.
Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union' (ABU) organizes Robocon, the largest Asian robotics event, in different
countries. Only the best team from a country qualifies for the international finals. SS-CASE-IT is representing
Pakistan since 2010 in different countries including Egypt, Thailand, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Indonesia. CRG,
representing Pakistan, has also scored wins against teams like India and Russia in the international
RoboCup has the game of soccer at its heart with cooperative multi-robot and multi-agent systems playing in
dynamic adversarial environments. In 2014, team from SS-CASE-IT represented Pakistan in this competition in
Brazil. Another team from SS-CASE-IT has participated in RoboCup in Germany in 2016.
Students from CRG have won several final year project exhibitions all around the national canvas. One
of the most prestigious final year project exhibition is COMPPEC, held in NUST each year, where our
student projects have won best and runners-up awards multiple times since 2009.
