The purpose of the OSU Robotics Club is to empower ambitious students with resources to build robots for fun and competition, remove barriers from entry into robotics, create a path to success, and form a pipeline of engineering leaders. We welcome students of all majors and engineering disciplines. Our members participate in international competitions against university and professional teams. We host both internal projects geared toward the beginner, as well as external projects which encompass all levels of knowledge and skill.

Mailing Lists

OSURC has two mailing lists:

osurcofficers@engr.orst.edu — Send an email to this list if you have a question about the club or want to get some information distributed to all members.

Featured Projects:

The Autonomous Aerial team was formed in 2009 and competes in the International Aerial Robotics Competition. For the 2013 competition, the vehicle must navigate through a building, remove a flash drive from a table, and replace it with a new one.
