The students of PCCOE had participated in ROBOCON 2015, an international level robotics competition held in various Asian countries. The event was organized by Maharashtra Academy of Engineering, Alandi, Pune, at, Shiv Chhatrapati Krida Sankul, Balewadi, Pune, from 5th to 7th March, 2015. This year’s theme was ‘badminton’s doubles game’. The problem statement was very challenging and given students brains a real engineering exercise. The highlight of this game is how the two robots hit and hit back shuttle by collaborating each other. Both the robots were designed and build by the students from Mechanical, Electronics and Telecommunication and Computer branches.

This year students have built two robots, one for shuttle service and other to return the opponent service. Total 25 students formed a team which included students from Mechanical, Electronics and Telecommunication and Computer branches. The team reported at competition venue on 4th March, 2015. This year total 84 teams had registered for the competition. The team secured 5th position in league level by winning both their matches.
