Welcome to the Cal Poly Robotics Club website! We are a project-based club that exemplifies the Cal Poly philosophy of “Learn by Doing”.
The primary focus of the club is to design and build robots, which we do during Saturday Build Days and at other times as determined by individual projects. All majors and skill levels are welcome. You don't need to be highly experienced, just eager to learn! The point of a project is to learn about robotics concepts and gain hands-on experience by actually designing, building, programming, and testing a robot. Take a look at our Club Projects to scope out an active project to join, or start a new project! See the About Us and FAQ pages for more info on the club and robotics at Cal Poly.
Come see what we are all about by attending a meeting!
General meetings typically consist of project status updates, project team formation, announcements about club events, brainstorming, presentations by professors or guest speakers from industry, and eating pizza (of course).
Build Days (project work days) are the best time to check out our robots, talk to team members, and potentially join a project that interests you.
See the Meetings page for more info. We have many exciting events planned and want to hear your ideas as well.
General Meetings: every other Thursday, 11am-12pm (Building 10, Room 200) - first meeting Thursday, September 30
Seminar Series: during non-meeting weeks Thursday, 11am-12pm (Building 10, Room 200)
Build Days: every Saturday, 10am-2pm in the Club Room (Building 197, Room 102)
