Want to design, build, and give life to a team of cutting-edge robots? 

UBC Thunderbots is an entirely student-run team dedicated to creating a fleet of autonomous soccer-playing robots to compete at the annual international RoboCup competition. Our 60+ students tackle both the technical and administrative aspects of many projects, gaining a valuable university experience that cannot be provided in the classroom. We regularly meet one evening a week as well as on Saturdays to work on projects together.

UBC Thunderbots prides itself on being highly competitive and finds its success in an environment of multi-disciplinary teamwork, mentorship, and student-directed learning. All skill levels are welcome! We recruit across many different disciplines, from first years to graduate students, and engineering to arts. 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.

Email us at if you have any questions.
