Course Description

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.
