Our lightweight combat robotics team is the largest collegiate program of its kind geared specifically towards beginner and intermediate engineers. The club provides an outlet for students to gain hands-on experience and apply the concepts taught in class to real-life scenarios. Students conceptualize, write proposals, design, manufacture and test arena combat robots to compete against other collegiate and professional teams in competition. Our mission is to teach students how to design and fabricate a competition-worthy robot, as well as provide students with the skills and experience to set them apart when entering the workforce.
The program is composed primarily of undergraduate engineering students, but no specific major, experience, or course of study is a prerequisite to join the club. Any student interested in participating this year can look forward to designing their very own 3lb. robot!
