Team Awards

2013

In 2013, we achieved third place at NURC (National Underwater Robotics Challenge) using AquaDevil and ROVINA. While we did not win any awards at MATE (Marine Advanced Technology Education Center), we did place 11th out of 23.

2012

In 2012, we developed a laser-triggered torpedo that helped us win 3rd place in NURC. That year also saw the debut of Koi at MATE. The design impressed the judges enough that we won the Marty Klein MATE Mariner award. Our then-president Emily McBryan also won the Engineering Evaluation MVP award for her outstanding performance.

2011

In the 2011 NURC we received second place in the university division and third place overall. We did not win anything at MATE, but we tried our hardest, which is all that really matters in the end.

2010

In the 2010 NURC our team earned 2nd place in our division, as well as impressing judges with our modular robot design

Our performance at the 2010 MATE Competition earned us 6th place (out scoring both MIT and Georgia Tech). Our team captain Mike Veto exemplified our team's effort by winning the "Engineering MVP" Award.

2009

Our first year at NURC we showed what strong teamwork could do, we had 3 drivers controlling 2 robots working together to complete the objectives. We earned 2nd place in the college division, and learned a lot on how we could prepare for our next competition.

After our success at NURC, we had high hopes for the MATE Competition. We again demonstrated our strong team spirit, having 3 drivers controlling a single robot. This new approach at ROV control impressed the judges, earning us the "Aloha Team Spirit Award". We had strong competition, but managed to earn 6th place, out preforming some of the top engineering schools in the country.
