Electrical and Computer Engineering students Theodore Carey and Nicholas Onessimo were successful in Western New England University's debut at the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Micromouse Competition held earlier this year. Each student team was required to designed an autonomous robotic mouse that could navigate and complete a complex maze in the shortest time possible. The Western New England students finished the competition in second place against 12 teams from northeastern colleges. Western New England University College of Engineering professors Dr. Amer Qouneh, Dr. Steve Northrup, and Dr. Jim Moriarty served as the team’s advisors.

The team also earned third placed standing at an IISE (Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers) regional competition.
