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 in the International Submarine Races in 2015, 2017 and 2019 at Naval Surface Warfare Centre in Carderock, USA. The society consists of students from a range of degree types and stages and 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 to help with engineering or SCUBA dive with the sub. More information on the race can be found here: http://www.subrace.eu/ https://internationalsubmarineraces.org/
