sUNSWift is helping to shape a clean energy future by developing a practical solar sports car using existing technology. In 2015 the team placed 4th overall against global challengers in the World Solar Competition.

The Redback Racing team designs, constructs and races an open-wheeled race car. The team has competed in the Formula SAE Australasian competition run by the Society of Automotive Engineers since 2000.

BLUEsat is dedicated to creating practical engineering projects that give undergraduate students hands-on experience in space technology. Current projects include a microsatellite test flight on a stratospheric balloon, and a rover suitable for asteroid, lunar and Mars-like environments.

Robogals aims to increase female participation in engineering, science and technology through fun and educational initiatives targeted at girls in primary and secondary school.

RoboCup is an annual international tournament where the best universities in the world compete in leagues such as soccer, work, home and rescue. In 2014, the UNSW team, rUNSWift, came home from Brazil as world champions.
