We're always looking for new talent here at WARG! So long as you're a student you're welcome to join, no matter what program or faculty you're in. The best way to get started is subscribing to our mailing list and coming to our meetings. Feel free to also join our slack.Join Mailing List
There are two types of meetings. There are work days, where all members are free to come to the bay and work on their tasks. There are 2 work days per week, plus some weekends. Check slack for dates, times, and locations of the meetings since it can vary term to term.
We also have official meetings. These will be roughly 1 hour in length and are to discuss status updates on all aspects of the team. These take place once every 2 weeks, and meeting dates and times will be posted on slack. You are expected to attend if you have a current task, or update a team lead on the project status prior to the meeting.
If you love to innvoate and create, and wanna be part of a team that try to make things like a VTOL Aircraft from scratch, or have a bunch of quads, rc cars, and planes communicating in a swarm, then this is the place for you.
Get respect and admiration from your family and friends, dazzle employers with your sparkling new resume, make connections that last a life time, and lay your hands on some pretty cool tech. What are you waiting for!
What do I need to know?
No seriously, nothing! Most of us came in with no experience or knowledge of this stuff. So long as you're willing to learn, you'll fit right in!
You can learn vision systems, control systems, mechanical design, systems integration, real-time software, or marketing. Pick your poison!
What are the different teams?
Here at WARG our team is split up into 4 sub teams. The mechanical, electrical/hardware, software, and buisness team. You're welcome to join any of these, no matter what faculty you're in. You can even join multiple teams if you like.
How much time do I need to invest?
As much as you want to! The minimum time investment is going to the meetings. Other than that, feel free to put in as much time as you want.
Who runs WARG?
The members of the WARG team do. The team leads are a group of WARG members who have dedicated their time and efforts to winning the competition. Team leads have a little extra responsibility. They have to handle the finances and accounts, run the meetings, help out new members, and decide on the team direction. You can become a team lead once you meet the following criteria:
- You want some extra responsibility
- You are in Waterloo (on campus or work term)
- You enjoy voicing your opinion and making clutch decisions
- You have been in WARG for a while and thus possess the background knowledge about the project to give effective guidance to other members
