Welcome to the official Competitive Robotics Orgsync page!

Are you fascinated by trinkets, odds, and gadgets? Do you want a place to refine your robot-building skills, but you do not have the money or space for your own personal workshop? Do you just want to explore what is out there? If you answered YES to any of these questions, consider joining Competitive Robotics this semester!

Our club partakes in creative projects, which involve many aspects of robotics such as motion control, programming, electronics, and autonomous systems. We encourage students in all fields of study with an interest in robotics to come and explore what our club has to offer! Indeed, our collaborate experience includes folks from all branches of engineering (ME, CE, CpE, EE), history, sociology, graphic design, business, and more. If you are committed to build it, we will help set you up and give you the tools you need to succeed!

We host two annual events; there is a battle-bot exhibition internal to CSUS in November, followed in March by a public exhibition event, the "Smackdown in Sac-Town" Robot Rumble, a part of the Sacramento State’s Engineering Expo. Our goal this year is to refit the Robot-Rumble event to be an S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) event, with collaborative efforts between a number of clubs and local business partners.

The club is always looking to establish additional resources such as establishing an archive of drawings for caricature battle-bots and custom projects, contact lists of relevant administrators, community groups, business partners, and an officer's manual for a how-to on managing the club's workshop and its materials. If you are interested in taking up an officer position within our ranks, please email your interest to the Vice President.

Are you waiting for an internship to come your way? Perhaps add some experience to put on your resume, and skills to add to your tool-belt of knowledge? Are you wondering if you will be prepared for your senior project?

Then come check out Competitive Robotics!
