Awards & Achievements
CRG has pioneered robotics research in Pakistan since its inception in early 2008 and has won more than 50 national and international titles. Few of the titles and participations include but not limited to:
Singapore Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge (SAUVC) 2017

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. Team from SS-CASE-IT comprised of four students, i.e., Mr. Haider Iftikhar, Mr. Usman Abid, Mr. Saad Malik and Ms. Mehrosh Fareed. Students were supervised by three faculty members, i.e., Dr. Mansoor Shaukat, Mr. Muhammad Adeel and Mr. Waqas Ur Rehman.

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.
