Team Leadership
Team 2016 is set up in a hierarchy of individuals. The head of the team, the Team Captain, maintains order in the team, keeping an effective system of communication between the technical and business sides of the team. 

Our team is composed of smaller subteams. Each subteam has a specific task be it involving the robot itself, or the whole team.

Industry experts in specific fields of engineering and business devote time to guiding and supporting students through building robots.
