Hydro Team

If you want to drive innovation and environmental awareness in the maritime industry, be part of a team of students across all years and disciplines, or simply like boats or robotics, then Hydro Team is for you.

We are competing in the MicroTransat and MAChallenge competitions, aiming to make a fully autonomous vessel capable of crossing the Atlantic.

We provide an opportunity to learn new skills across design, construction, marketing and sponsor outreach. Join us to be part of an exciting, cutting-edge project, and to have fun with like-minded people!.

About Hydro Team

You don’t need to be an engineer to join, as there are students of all levels ready to help you learn new knowledge and skills, giving an opportunity to really get hands-on with the project, being responsible for the craft's hull, appendages, electronics and control systems. Or you can work on videos and social media presence to advertise our team, looking to find sponsors and gain invaluable experience at communicating with contacts in the real world.

Throughout the year members will design, construct and test boats to participate in various challenges and competitions. Our focus for this year is the use of automation in our vessels, and looking at its potential use in conservation and exploration of our seas.

We meet on Thursdays at Boldrewood Campus - if you're interested in joining or just want to find out more, either email or Facebook message us!
