Human Powered Submarine

External Engagement

We are a group of students at the University of Southampton that design, build, and test human powered submarines to compete internationally! We recently competed for the first time at the International Submarine Races 2015.

The race took place at the Naval Surface Warfare Centre in Carderock, USA. The society consists of approximately 50 interdisciplinary students from various academic tiers including undergraduates, Masters Students, PhDs and EngDs.

Our members come from a variety of backgrounds including engineering, naval architecture, astronautics & aeronautics, biology, chemistry, physics and environmental science.

However, 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. This year we aim to compete at the European International Submarine Races held locally in Gosport.

More information on the race can be found here: http://www.subrace.eu.

Membership Information

These are the current membership plans offered by Human Powered Submarine, although many groups offer a free period for new members to try out their group.

  • Lifetime Membership (£5)
    This membership permits you lifetime access to the society and our meetings. We will keep you up to date on what's happening within the society and when our socials are. It's a fraction of the price of building the actual submarine so it's a bargain in our opinion!
