Team Organization

Competing in a field like robotics requires an entire team. Our team of 30 students and 9 mentors is divided into sub-groups that each specialize in a field. 

 

We often compare our team’s structure to the human body. The Programming, Fabrication, and Electronics sub-groups are the skeleton and muscle of the team and provide the foundation for us to build a robot and compete. Our operations, design, and brand management sub-groups are the nervous system of the team. They provide us with an identity, allows us to have creative expression,  and keep the team running. All of our sub-groups are necessary for the success of the team. Together all of our sub-groups work to create one body, one team that embodies and reflects all of us.

Subgroups 

Brand Management 

The Brand Management sub-group cultivates the culture and image of the team in creative ways to market our team. This subgroup is involved with everything we do outside of physically building robots.

Design

The Design sub-group utilizes computer-aided design (CAD) software to 3-D model custom parts and mechanisms for our robot. This sub-group is also in charge of operating and maintaining all of our inhouse precision machines such as the 3D printer and laser engraver.

Research & Development

The Research & Development sub-group is a secondary subgroup under Design. They focus on developing new technologies and equipment for the team that are not directly linked to the robot.
