RP-Renesas Grand Prix

The RP Renesas Grand Prix is an activity for secondary school students organised by the School of Engineering's Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (DEEE).

With Renesas Electronics Singapore Pte Ltd as the Technology Partner and Main Sponsor, and Woodlands Youth Executive Committee as the Community Partner and Venue Sponsor, this event involves line trace type robot competitions in which fully self-propelled MCU cars, controlled by microcontrollers, compete in driving speed.

RP-Renesas Grand Prix

Participants are judged based on the time their MCU car takes to complete the entire race track without dropping off the track. There are also prizes for the Most Popular Video Awards and Best MCU Car Body Design. 

This competition aims to spark secondary school students' passion to learn, apply, and appreciate the knowledge they have gained and to inspire them further to explore an Engineering career in future.
