ROV

The MATE Center uses underwater robots – also known as remotely operated vehicles or ROVs – to teach science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and prepare students for technical careers.  Working in partnership with the Marine Technology Society ROV Committee, MATE created the ROV competition as a way to:

  • Engage students in STEM and expose them to science and technology careers
  • Encourage students to develop and apply technical, teamwork, and problem solving skills
  • Provide funds, materials, and technical expertise to support student learning provide industry with skilled individuals who can fill workforce needs
