The UBC Thunderbots are based in the University of British Columbia. The team started with a small number of students in early 2002. Most of these students graduated two years after. However, since September 2006, a new generation of undergraduate student re-established the UBC Robot Soccer Team. In the new generation of UBC Thunderbots, members come from a diverse background, ranging from Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Computer Science, etc.
