We are SUHPS and we Design, Build, Test and Race human powered submarines to compete internationally!
We have competed in the International Submarine Races in 2015, 2017 and 2019 at Naval Surface Warfare Centre in Carderock, USA and we will be competing in the European races in 2022 for the first race since Covid-19. The society consists of students from a range of degree types and stages, it doesn't matter to us what you think you can do, we will show you you can do more and teach you any skills you might need to give us a hand! Just because you're not a STEM student doesn't mean you can't get involved! We welcome students of all disciplines to join us to help with engineering or SCUBA dive with the sub.
