Tokyo Electron (TEL) in Hsinchu, Taiwan, a group company of the leading semiconductor production equipment manufacturer TEL, has been sponsoring the TEL Robot Combat since 2016 with the purpose of identifying promising engineering talents. As the competition enters its second year, TEL in Hsinchu, Taiwan held preparatory briefings at a number of university campuses across Taiwan beginning in September 2017, attracting wide attention.

Preliminaries for the Robot Combat are held in three districts (North, Central, and South), and surviving teams compete in the finals. At the North District preliminary held on Saturday, November 11 at the table tennis room in B1 of the National Taiwan University gymnasium, 50 teams from 16 universities in the district competed against each other. The participants consisted of students of science and engineering departments, including those majoring in chemical engineering, machine engineering, materials engineering, materials science and engineering, computer science, electric machine engineering, electronic engineering, and power machinery engineering. The participants, including repeat challengers and teams of foreign students, all competed seriously to win.

In the preliminary competition, the teams are first tasked to assemble and complete a robot within one hour. A referee determines winning teams, who are qualified to move on to the next competition held in the afternoon. The next round consists of a series of 3-minute one-on-one battles. After a fierce competition, the following six teams made it to the finals: Group A: Team “Bobcat Stinky Pot” (山貓臭臭鍋) from National Taiwan University; Group B: Team “Rocker in Infinite Hand Strength” (搖桿在手力量無窮) from National Taipei University of Technology; Group C: Team “Burning Legion” (燃燒軍團) from Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology; Group D: Team “Chicken Dinner” from National Taiwan University; Group E: Team “Give Clams” (給蛤) from National Taiwan University; and Group F: Team “Eric Believer” (Eric信徒) from National Taiwan University.
