All skill levels are welcome! We recruit first years to graduate students. All we ask for is that you have dedication, enthusiasm, and an eagerness to learn about robotics. The technical projects are highly involved, but, when accomplished, are very rewarding.

Some of the skills that the team can help you develop are:
