Competition-Oriented Bradley Robotics Alliance (COBRA)

The mission of the Competition-Oriented Bradley Robotics Alliance (COBRA) is to help students reach their highest potential by providing a multi-disciplinary learning and nurturing environment focused on the design and construction of electro-mechanical devices for local and national competitions. The goal is to bolster the curriculum of the School of Engineering by providing students with hands-on, practical, "beyond the classroom" experiences and resources would otherwise be difficult and/or impractical for professors to provide given their already demanding responsibilities. The COBRA student chapter at Bradley University was founded in 2008.
