What Can I Do With This Major?

Vessel Named the Most Maneuverable - International Sub Race

The Florida Atlantic University College of Engineering and Computer Science (COECS) Human-Powered Submarine (HPS) team placed third overall at the fourth biennial European International Submarine Race (eISR) at Haslar in Gosport, England.

The race is a unique sporting and engineering challenge which involves teams from universities across the world designing, building and racing human-powered submarines around a slalom course at QinetiQ’s Ocean Basin, one of the world’s largest indoor freshwater tanks.

The team’s submarine, HPS Atlantic, was designed specifically for the slalom section of the eISR course and was named the most maneuverable vessel in the field.
