Lunar Knights Mining Club


Lunar Knights Mining is a UCF Engineering Club that participates in the NASA Lunabotics Engineering Competition. Every year, we compete at the Kennedy Space Center against 50+ universities across the nation on an industrial grade simulated moon arena with a robot we design to excavate under its surface.

Mission Statement

The Lunar Knights Mining Club is to enlighten students about the importance of robotic exploration , the field of In Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU), and mining in both Earth and Space environments.


The Lunar Knights Mining Club was founded in the summer of 2014. After attending the fifth annual NASA Robotic Mining Competition, our founder realized the amazing opportunities that the competition holds. It is through this drive of wanting to teach students more hands on experience, that the Lunar Knights team was born.

We currently have 40+ team members that range from the following areas of study

  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Information Technology
  • Mechanical Engineering
