About Us

The UVSRC made its debut appearance at the European International Submarine Race (eISR) in Gosport England in July 2018.  Since then, we have updated our design, grown our community, and recently returned from our third international competition in July of 2022! Below you can meet our Board of Directors and Engineering Leads that make this all possible, as well as browse our past projects.
