COMBAT ROBOTICS

About Combat Robotics

Meetings: Every Thursday, 6:00—7:00PM

Location: Boelter Hall, Room 5249

Our mission is to teach members how to design and fabricate a competition-worthy robot, as well as provide them with the skills and experience they need to set them apart when entering the workforce.

Combat Robotics is the largest collegiate program of its kind, and ASME’s most popular technical project, 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 three and twelve-pound combat robots of various weapon types. Previous projects include “DracUCLA” a 120-pound drum spinner, “Bruiner of Worlds” a 60-pound thwackbot, “UBRuined” a-60 pound horizontal spinner, and a small fleet of three-pound combat robots.
