How to join us
The team is open to join for all University of Waterloo students. We encourage everyone, regardless of skill level or exposure to aviation, to join the team and contribute to our various technical programs.
We ask for our team members to complete an introductory task when first joining the team. These bootcamps are designed to teach you about the basic technical skills required to contribute to the team and are designed for a first year student to take approximately 3 to 4 hours to complete. We encourage new members to ask questions throughout their bootcamp as it will give you an insight into our mentorship culture – We're happy to help you through it!
Join our Discord Server, the team's primary communication platform.
What are the different teams?
How much time do I need to invest?
Here at WARG, our team is split multiple sub-teams:
Embedded Flight Software
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.
What do I need to know?
If you love to innovate, create, and want to be part of a team that designs UAVs with custom-built autopilots from scratch, then this is the place for you!
Show your family and friends the amazing things you’re capable of, dazzle employers with your sparking new résumé addition, make connections that last a lifetime, and lay your hands on some pretty cool technology.
No seriously, nothing! Most of us came in with no experience or knowledge of this stuff. As long as you’re willing to learn, you’ll fit right in!
You can learn vision systems, control systems, mechanical design, real-time software, marketing, or anything in between. Pick your poison!
