Ottabotics team

Ottabotics is the University of Ottawa's robotics club. Ottabotics strives for members to develop a variety of engineering based skills through designing and building robots. This goal is demonstrated through their semester learning project, student project team, and three competition teams. All members are free to join a student project team, the Recycle Sorter, or one of three competition teams: International Autonomous Robot Racing Challenge, International Aerial Robotics Competition, and Roboboat. For all these projects, the main focus is on the mechanical, electrical, and programming aspects of the robot in order to create an innovational design.

University of Ottawa Supermileage

Supermileage team

The Supermileage team is full of passionate and innovative future engineers.  As a team of undergraduate students, our goal is to build a car with a fuel-efficiency that can reach between 800 and 1000 miles per gallon. The mission of this project is to promote a healthier environment and to pair performance and fuel-efficiency.

SAE Aerospace Club uOttawa

This years new team consists of passionate students from different engineering disciplines working together to craft a RC aeroplane. The team is working hard to make sure that they are competitive and able to positively represent the university on international forums. SAE Aerospace invests its days and nights doing research, finalizing designs and making sure that no stones are left unturned in this journey towards engineering excellence. They will be participating in an international competition, SAE Aero Design East held in March 2018, in Florida.

The University of Ottawa Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR)

GNCTR team

The Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR) is the largest and oldest student engineering competition in Canada. Long time running since 1974, the goal of this competition is to build a toboggan with a running surface made entirely of concrete and then race it against other teams, competing for the prestigious title of fastest concrete toboggan in the world! From initial conception, to design calculations and final assembly, students get the opportunity to foster their applied knowledge as well as their teamwork and interpersonal skills. The competition is a great opportunity to meet spirited engineering students from across Canada who share a passion for design as well as having fun.

Baja SAE

Baja SAE team

Baja SAE is an off road racing team focusing on designing and racing the quickest and most durable off road vehicle possible.  The goal is to be able to maneuver through any, and all terrain put before the vehicle in a controlled, yet fast and reliable manner.


bionics team

uOttawa Bionics is a student-run group developing a hip-mounted wearable robotic device to assist in the rehabilitation of patients with reduced muscular strength. The first exoskeleton, designed for stroke patients, is to be submitted to the Rehabilitation Engineering Society of North America Student Design Competition in April 2018, and the Create the Future conference in June 2018.

UOE Racing

UOE Racing team

UOE Racing is uOttawa's first and only electric car team. They are a group of dedicated engineers focused on making the most efficient electric car possible. The team will be competing in the Shell Eco-Marathon, held this year in California, USA, in the prototype electric car category.

Formula uOttawa

Formula team

Formula uOttawa is a 3rd year Formula SAE competition team looking forward to competing in SAE international's Michigan event later this year. With the help of CEED, their sponsors, the Faculty of Engineering and dedicated students, the team works to design and fabricate an open wheel race car from scratch. The focus of this team is to optimize design iterations and represent our Faculty on an international scale.

uOttawa Rocketry (uOSTAR)

uOttawa Rocketry team

The team is focused on developing many technologies relating to the field of rocketry in hopes of competing in the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition in June 2018: a competition where teams must design, build and launch an experimental sounding rocket to 10000 ft.

To satisfy the team and competition objectives, it is imperative to build as many rocket components in-house, by students, as possible. Some of these components include, the rocket engine, the oxidizer tank, the parachute and aerodynamic structures. Not only do the components of the rocket need to be made or acquired, but so does any and all testing equipment and suite of sensors, data collection and safety electronics. Many of these projects require several phases of experimental prototyping before a final product can be said to have been achieved.
