"A community makerspace where students obtain hands-on experience applying what they have learned in the classroom."

- Colin Petherbridge
President, MIRL

Who we are

Lead by an energetic student leadership team, under the guidance of Dr. Anthony Choi, the Machine Intelligence and Robotics Laboratory (MIRL) empowers ambitious students with resources to build robots for fun and competition, removes barriers to entry into robotics, and creates a path to engineering leadership success. We are a makerspace for the Mercer campus and we welcome everyone from every major.

You can start hands-on, graduate-level research immediately. We have no division between undergraduate and graduate level research. Current lab research projects hosted by MIRL are listed on the Research page with smaller more social projects hosted by the Mercer Robotics Club.
