Robotics at CUD
Robotics is an active area of interest for many CUD students and the CUD Robotics Club, established in Fall 2015, brings together students from across the University to work together to create functioning robots.
Participation in the club is a fun way to develop new skills and explore the future of technology, while meeting other students with similar interests. Members also have the opportunity to take part in external events and competitions, in the UAE and wider region.
The Robotics Club operates under three main categories.
1) Mechanical: This involves working on building a robot from scratch; transforming the imagined robot design into a real robot.
2) Electronics: This involves creating the connection between the different robot parts through various boards, and then connecting to an active object that can be read by a PC or be controlled by a wired or wireless controller.
3) Software: This involves writing codes to make the robots sensor active and readable, and to give commands that make the robot functionally work.
The purpose of the CUD Robotics Club is to empower ambitious students with resources, to enable them to build robots for fun and competitive purposes; to remove barriers from entry into robotics, creating a path to success.
We aim to bring together members from all majors of the University – with different perspectives we will be able to create a community that knows about robots and make it enjoyable at the same time.
If you’re a CUD student with an interest in any aspect of robotics and a desire to learn something new, you are invited to join the Club. For more information you can email Roboto@cud.ac.ae
