So you want to design, build, and give life to a team of cutting-edge robots? This is the place to be!
The Thunderbots are an entirely student run team of thirty plus engineering and computer science students dedicated to creating a team of autonomous soccer-playing robots. Together they tackle both the technical and administrative aspects of a project, gaining a valuable university experience that cannot be provided in the classroom. The team has two team captains to cover both the technical and administrative aspects, as well as leads for Mechanical, Electrical, and Software sub teams. The Team meets regularly every Thursdays afternoon and Saturdays morning to go through updates, but much of the work is done throughout the week.
The Thunderbots prides itself on being a highly competitive team that finds its success in an environment of multi-disciplinary teamwork,
mentor-ship, and student-directed learning.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.
The team is divided into three sub-teams: mechatronics, software and administrative. We meet as a team every Saturday morning, and much more frequently prior to competitions. For those dedicated members that put in the extra effort, competition travel includes places like: Gratz, Singapore, Atlanta, Istanbul, Mexico City and this year – Quebec!
The application is currently closed. However, we welcome everyone to apply next year!
