The NU Robotics Club is an umbrella organization that maintains several projects, independent from each other, across the field of robotics while holding general meetings to unite the organization for presentations, activities, and trips.

The NU Robotics Club is an umbrella organization that maintains several projects, independent from each other, across the field of robotics while holding general meetings to unite the organization for presentations, activities, and trips. We strive to lower the floor for people looking to learn robotics, and emphasize that the pursuit of learning is more important than sheer knowledge.

Our goal is to de-mystify robotics. We provide a launch-pad for learning about robotics and self-starting projects. We firmly believe that a commitment to learning matters more than accumulated knowledge ever could, and strive to equip you with the resources you need. It’s never too late to start.

Mission: For many students in college, robotics seems like something that is too difficult to get into. This organization is here to provide both a launchpad for learning about robotics, and for learning how to self-start and manage projects by working with a combination of faculty, peers, and graduate students on novel robotics projects.
