Upcoming Events - RAS General Body Meeting


The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Student Chapter for University at Buffalo- SUNY (RAS@UB) has officially been approved and is open to all undergraduates and graduates of SUNY-UB to join and learn ongoing developments in the field of robotics. This chapter offers students from diverse backgrounds at SUNY-UB a first-hand opportunity to get involved, participate, contribute, share their experience and eventually, gain real-world knowledge and experience in the vast area of robotics and automation. Though, this is a chapter supported by IEEE Robotics and Automation society, it is open for people from diverse backgrounds (engineering, science and even, non-technical) along as you have an interest and are looking to learn something new and fun. This student-run independent chapter will primarily serve to initiate public interest, education outreach and provide means to directly or help find support for exceptional projects in the areas of robotics, mechatronics and automation. For this to open, we wish to encourage graduate and undergraduate students first to become of part of RAS@UB and explore this new field from varied perspectives. We are currently in the process of charting out the events in the near future including training programs, technical seminars from industrial and academic experts, robotic competitions, networking events and many more. We envision to build strong multidisciplinary student groups that are not only adept at the technical know-hows of robotic systems, but also get involved in hands-on projects and problems for fun-learning exploration in this area.

This website will list all the information you need to know with respect to our chapter including current chapter members, future events, how to gain memberships, upcoming projects and many more interesting "cool-stuffs" about robotics !!! We are currently in the process of updating some of these sections and so, please come back to see in near future for the updated info. Meanwhile, if you are interested to know more and/or willing to join the RAS@UB chapter, please contact our RAS@UB President, Michael Anson (email: mjanson@buffalo.edu).
