MIT Portugal Marine Robotics Summer School
The MIT Portugal Program launched its inaugural Marine Robotics Summer School hosted by the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP). The goal of the course was to provide a comprehensive overview of Marine Robotics with a special focus on applications in ocean observation, underwater archeology, and ecosystems mapping.
During two weeks fifteen selected students worked on assembling Underwater Gliders with kits provided by MIT Portugal. At the end of the two-week course, students presented their work and tested their gliders in a swimming pool.
The course was organized in collaboration with the LSTS – Underwater Systems and Technology Laboratory; Colab +Atlantic, MIT, and the University of Minho School of Engineering.
