Abstract

Over the past two years, an Ocean Engineering Minor has been offered at University College London for undergraduate students. The first module of this programme is offered to second-year students and represents an introduction to ocean engineering. This article describes in detail the preparation of the coursework component of this module, which consists in a design and build project of simple ROVs. The aim of the coursework is to help students apply their knowledge of naval architecture to a practical problem and learn about the difficulties and inaccuracies associated with practical work in the process. A detailed description of the project is provided, with an accurate cost break-down so that other institutions may include a similar component in their teaching portfolios. Improvements on the current set-up based on students’ feedback are also described.
