MU Robotics has been an organization at the University of Missouri since 2013 and we have been involved in many types of robot applications. Previous activities have included developmental workshops, programming robots, and building our own combat robots, but type of robotic adventure is possible within our organization. We are constantly growing and developing a wide range of robots and we need your help to keep our organization growing.

Why join?

You get to help create an actual robot!

Our first robot, Zou Keeper

MU Robotics enables you to make your ideas a reality within the field of robotics. Even if you have no experience, you can still contribute your ideas to the group and expand your knowledge of science and engineering with the help of our more experienced members.  This organization provides the hands-on experience that you can’t get from a classroom setting. Teamwork is a big part of MU Robotics and prepares you for real world situations where you will work with people of different backgrounds to achieve a common goal.


Development steps you
can participate in:

  • Design: Develop the electronic and mechanical designs using software such as AutoCAD or Solidworks.
  • Manufacturing: Machine and manufacture mechanical parts.
  • Electrical: Design circuits, wire robots, and procure electrical components.
  • Integration: Work on multi-disciplinary teams to assemble electrical and mechanical components together.
  • Programming: Use languages such as C/C++, Python, and Java to automate robots.
  • Business: Develop and maintain sponsor relationships, keep track of expenditures, calculate event and robot costs, and develop advertising strategies.

*If any of these tasks sound interesting to you please contact us and see when our next meeting is on our calendar.
