Class meets at the University of California, San Diego, 9500 Gilman Dr. from 8:30 am - 3:00 pm.
San Diego is a leader when it comes to
building Remotely Operated Vehicles, (ROV's), especially when it comes to
exploring our ocean. This technology, also known as Blue Technology, is
an ever expanding field with many employment opportunities available. Over 70%
of our planet is covered with water. There are places in our ocean we
have never seen but with the advent of ROV's mounted with cameras, we can
explore virtually anywhere depending on how the ROV was designed. In this
course, we will build a generic ROV, test it out and then redesign/build
another ROV that will be more efficient based on our trial and error testing.
A remotely operated vehicle (ROV)
is an unoccupied underwater robot that is connected to a ship by a series of
cables. These cables transmit command and control signals between the operator
and the ROV, allowing remote
navigation of the vehicle.
Course fee: $265.00
Registration is open until course is filled. Space is limited.
