Who we are

UWROV was founded 10 years ago by UW Oceanography students interested in ocean technology and has continued to expand its scope to other engineering and marine science disciplines ever since. Our team has competed in the MATE ROV Competition since 2015, as well as supporting regional events through volunteering and mentorship.

UWROV members served as key volunteers during the 2018 MATE International ROV Competition held in Federal Way, WA, and returned to take 6th place at the 2021 MATE World Championships.

Most recently, we took 2nd place in division at the MATE World Championships and took 1st place for our submission to the NOAA Ocean Exploration Video / Machine Learning Challenge! We continue to give UW students hands-on experience in ocean technology, interdisciplinary engineering, and professional skills.
