The article analyses the design of robots that were developed by engineering students for a robot contest with the aim of strengthening a set of basic skills that would be useful for the future professional lives of the participants. To this end, the results of a survey given to the participants of the international competition Eurobot 2007 are presented. Participants were asked their opinions on why they participated in the competition, what they gained in their personal and professional lives for having participated as well as positive and negative aspects of the experience.
