Fluid Dynamics

SUBC, also known as UBC’s Human Powered Submarine, is exactly that.  Students design and fabricate a “wet” submarine (which means that it’s flooded) that is powered entirely by a single person!  But don’t worry, along with being in full scuba gear, the submarine pilot is also accompanied by a trained dive team as they race to get the fastest time.  Their competition alternates between Maryland, USA and Gosport, England every year.


UBC AeroDesign builds and flies payload lifting, radio controlled airplanes to compete in the international SAE Aero Design Competition. The team strives to provide a learning environment for students to experiment and experience what it is like to work on a world class engineering challenge in the field of aerospace.
