Human Powered Submarine

We are a group of students at the University of Southampton that design, build, and test human powered submarines to compete internationally! We have competed at the International Submarine Races in 2015 and 2017.

The races 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.
