The University of Toronto Robotics Association (UTRA) is an organization composed of U of T alumni, professors and undergraduate students from the Faculties of Applied Science & Engineering and Arts & Science. The Association was formed in the winter of 2002 with the objective to design, build and maintain robots to be used in internationally recognized robotics competitions such as Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition (IGVC), RoboBrawl, PacBot, and the RoboCup Competition.
Students gain valuable experience in activities ranging from the engineering of robots to financial management and most importantly, real-world application of their education. We will be committed to further promoting the educational impact of UTRA by organizing lectures and seminars pertaining to university research and the robotics industry as a whole. We are also committed to the community through high school outreach by promoting the fields of engineering, robotics, and the University as a whole.
