Our Mission

UBC Thunderbots is an engineering student design team that designs and creates competitive robots to compete in the Small Size League of the international Robocup Federation. Our aim is to use the publicly appealing platform of robot soccer to generate interest and enthusiasm for robotics within the UBC and BC communities. We also strive to enhance the educational experience of UBC students by providing an inclusive environment with emphasis on teaching, mentoring, and challenging members to seek out, implement, and create novel solutions to complex, multidisciplinary engineering problems. Our members, through their experience on Thunderbots, develop skills needed to quickly integrate into any team and make meaningful contributions.
