JOIN THE TEAM

The Stony Brook Robotics Team is always looking for passionate, and curious students to be part of our ever-growing community. Join us in doing bold things.

Send us an email or join us at our General Body Meetings (GBM) to share what you would like to be involved in!

RECRUITMENT OVERVIEW

If you have a passion for robotics, engineering, and hands-on learning, join us at our weekly General Body Meetings (GBM) to learn about what we do, how to get involved, and how you can contribute to our projects.

You can also visit us during our lab hours and build sessions throughout the week. We are constantly learning about new topics, planning new projects, and developing our robots. The Fall 2019 lab hours and build sessions calendar is to be determined.

When looking for new members, what we look for most are passion and dedication. Experience is not necessary! We love people who love robots and love to be involved. If you've had previous experience, that is a bonus, but only really important if you wish to take a leadership role.

Technical Projects

Robotics is a multidisciplinary field that requires collaboration between people with a diverse set of skills, from mechanical fabrication to computer vision. Regardless of what you are passionate about and what you want to achieve, there will be ample opportunity to take on interesting challenges and learn something new.

For the past several years, our team has designed and built several robots, including a Mars Rover and a Battle Bot. This year, our team will be focusing on two primary projects: an Autonomous Ground Vehicle and a Mars Rover, with positions open across all of our engineering teams, including some leadership roles.

Business Endeavors

Running a large, diverse, and passionate team requires a strong business side to support all of our projects and mission.

If you are interested in graphic design, marketing, social media, event management, or just helping to build the Stony Brook Robotics community, come and join our Events, Marketing, and Partnership teams. It is also possible to have secondary roles in engineering teams.

LAB ACCESS

To access our lab spaces, all members are required to complete several safety courses that will teach the basics of lab safety. The required courses are: ENV 001 (Hazardous Waste), ELS 002 (Lab Safety - Chemical Hazards), and EOS 029 (Machine Shop Safety). All of these courses are taken through Blackboard and do not affect your transcript. They are solely to certify you to be in the lab spaces.

Please provide us with printed copies of the signed Machine Shop Safety Agreement, and your grades from all three courses to gain access to the lab spaces. You can provide them to us during our GBMs, lab hours, and build sessions.

The following link will guide you through the process of completing the safety courses and providing the required documentation. Please follow the directions carefully!

If you have taken one or more of these courses previously, you do not need to retake them. Please follow the guidelines in the above linked document to provide the required documentation before accessing the lab spaces.

General Lab Rules

1. No shorts, skirts, etc. Long pants only!

2. No open-toed shoes (such as sandals, flip-flops, etc.). Closed-toed shoes such as sneakers and boots only!

3. No food/beverages of any kind.

While these are a list of the basic rules you should follow, a more extensive list of rules that you must follow is provided in the Machine Shop Safety Agreement, a signed copy of which is required to gain access to the lab spaces.
