Scottish Regional Final Winners Complete MATE ROV Design Competition

14 July 2009

The Scottish Regional Final winners for the ROV competition - the RGU ROV team and the Dyce Academy team - participated last weekend in the MATE ROV design competition at Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts Maritime Academy, Massachusetts.

Of a total of 28 participants in the University category from across USA, China and Russia the RGU team came in at 11th place, beating some stalwarts such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology by a comfortable margin (they were placed 22nd). Dyce Academy, who competed in the Schools category, was placed at 18th spot of a total of 26 - performing admirably in the mission tasks, but lost out on their poster presentation.
