Two Human Powered Submarines designed and raced by students in the Ocean Engineering Program at Texas A&M University.
The Human Powered Submarine Project is an annual extracurricular design project in which students design, build, and race human powered submarines for the International Submarine Races. For details and how to be involved, please see the MTS/SNAME student website. Races are normally scheduled during the summer every other year.
Since 1991, ocean engineering students have participated in the human powered submarine races. The students built both two-person and one-person submarines, powered by SCUBA certified student drivers. Past submarines include:
The team is looking forward to another great race at the International Submarine Races in 2013.
