The Angers university winner of a national robotics competition

A second acknowledegment has been received by the Angers university in less than a month. After an official ranking of the Angers university in the second place for the number of students getting their licence in three years, a new award came on May 11th in La-Ferté-Bernard (Sarthe) where the final of the robotics France cup took place. And, for its first participation in such a competition, the Angers university was the winner!

While the topic of the competition was "Happy birthday", all the participants were due to create a machine able to blow out candles, to throw cherries on a cake, to inflate a balloon and to pile up cups. And all that in less than 30 seconds!
The Angevins got the victory in final against the Ville d'Avray university while the Ecole supérieure de l'aéronautique et de l'espace (Toulouse) was third and l'Ecole supérieure d'électronique de l'Ouest, fourth. 

More than 180 teams of engineers schools were involved in the competition which demonstrates the ability of the teams to use their knowledges and their will to win together. On the following day, the Angers university met the winners of similar competitions coming from 18 countries.

 After the image of Angers university was badly damaged last year because of financial problems, it finally overcame, that one collected since those two good news. It has now to use those awards in order to get better allocations from the state because, obviously, it does good use of its insufficient resources and deserve larger means.
