More Reasons to Join (from an engineering standpoint)

Three mechanics planning out their next part

Obviously, this is the most important part of Robotics, building the actual robot! The build process starts with the CAD Team, who create 3D models of the robot so we can plan and test our designs before building it. The mechanics get to do all sorts of crazy things to put the robot together (including but not limited to duct tape and zip-ties), resulting in the frame, the husk of the robot. The electricians hook everything up with wires and crimps of all sorts and install the final pieces of hardware, like the CRIO, Jaguars, and LED strips. Finally, the programmers “breathe life” into the robot with their programming, resulting in a completed robot that we take to competition!

More Reasons to Join (from a marketing standpoint)

Showing off our robot at the middle school.

As a member of Titanium Robotics, you don’t just design, program, and produce robots. No no… Yes, you can do just that and that alone, but you can also join a section of the team that seems to be the less known part of robotics. Aside from the nerds in the corner clickity-clacking away at a keyboard typing things in an alien language, the builders in the room sawing and drilling and making a mess, and the electricians connecting black wires and red wires (I don’t really know which one goes where) and deciding whether to cut the black one or the red one, there are the spiffy, bow-tie-clad, men and women of the marketing/business team who often times talk about things that no one else in the room cares about.

Our logo is preserved in pristine condition by the marketing team.

Hipsters, writers, poets, artists, musicians, nerds, geeks, exercise buffs, fashion buffs, divas, dancers and more gather together and create what they call “the image” of the team. They make sure our team doesn’t go into a dark and depressing era of gloomy black and red and keep the team running strong in the public eye. They keep our team happy with feedings every so often and make sure our bank account doesn’t go dry. They also design and maintain everything from pamphlets and brochures to the interiors of our pit area (for those who don’t know, the area where the team works on and presents the robot at competition) to the team’s website (that thing that you’re reading right now!!). The business/marketing team does a lot, and if you share your interests with them, you too can expand your knowledge of the various aspects of the business world.
