Racing submarines

––––––––––––––––––––

This was a fun project that spanned the last three years of my undergraduate degree. Teaching marine engineering by building something real was the excuse. It resulted in an entirely student led racing team 10 engineers strong, complete with corporate sponsors and an entirely student-built boat. It culminated with drag races against other submarines down a dark torpedo testing tank in exotic Maryland USA. And also a new UK speed record (for human-powered submarines...). 4.05 knots.
