FLAGSHIP BG_edited.png

Our heavyweight combat robotics team or "flagship" team is specifically geared towards more so intermediate to advanced 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 robots from a range of weight classes and various weapon types.


Previous projects include “DracUCLA” a 120lb. drum spinner, “Bruiner of Worlds” a 60lb. thwackbot, “UBRuined” a 60lb. horizontal spinner, as well as other 12lb, 15lb, and 30lb robots!
