Hydro Team

External Engagement

We are a group of under/post-grad/MsC/PhD students from all disciplines who design and construct a 2-3metre long energy efficient remote control boat incorporating innovations with the aim of making shipping more efficient.

The boat is entered into the international HydroContest in Lausanne, Switzerland in July. 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! Throughout the year members design, construct and test a 2.5m by 2.5m water craft to carry 20kg and 200kg weights in three races.

Responsible for the craft's hull, appendages, electronics and control system while marketing their team, sponsored by Hydros and UK companies interested in modern energy and nautical innovation..

Debating Union

Political, Social Awareness & Campaigns

We run weekly debates which are free to attend and open to everyone. In the last year we have had the pleasure of welcoming several high profile speakers to these events, including former MP and Government Minister Sir Vince Cable, Spokesperson for the Israeli Embassy Yiftah Curiel and leader of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron. We also run training sessions to educate people in debating, improve their skills at public speaking and formulating arguments, and prepare them for inter-university competitions.
