About us

A group of dedicated students of Zakir Husain College of Engineering & Technology have been working on Autonomous Underwater Vehicles for the past 5 years. Now it is upon our shoulders to carry their mission forward. We have created the students chapter Autonomous Underwater Vehicle- Zakir Husain College of Engineering & Technology (AUV-ZHCET) which will give us the platform we need. Our club gives aspiring engineers an opportunity to explore the depths of the oceans and the fields of mechanical, electronics and computer engineering. The students will learns the skills of underwater robotics and Artificial Intelligence. We have won a few competitions and received a lot of appreciation for our designs in particular. We are targeting several other competions nationally and internationally like SAVe, SAUVC and ROBOSUB. To design and fabricate the AUV we have formed 4 multidisciplinary teams - working on the same goal.


The Marine Technology Society promotes awareness, understanding, and the advancement and application of marine technology. Incorporated in 1963, the international society brings together businesses, institutions, professionals, academics, and students who are ocean engineers, technologists, policy makers, and educators. MTS facilitate a broader understanding of the relevance of marine technology to wider global issues by enhancing the dissemination of marine technology information. It also advance the development of the tools and procedures required to explore, study and further the responsible and sustainable use of the oceans. The Society publishes a peer-reviewed journal — The Marine Technology Society Journal. It has three technical divisions and 31 Professional Committees (technical interest groups). The society hosts several conferences yearly. And, it supports 13 Sections, which focus on events and programs unique to their geographic areas, enhancing networking among local colleagues, businesses, universities and government/military offices.

As founding members, we wanted to introduce our college undergraduate students to underwater technology. For this, Marine Technology Society was the best choice as their vision aligned with ours, which is to spread awareness, understanding, and the advancement and application of marine technology. We wanted to allow our students to have a platform by which they could interact with other international students through their research and innovative ideas. The eight of us decided to have a chapter of MTS at the college after knowing the countless yet priceless opportunities the students can get by being a member of the MTS chapter in research and innovation of underwater technology.

The AUV ZHCET club has been working in the Autonomous technology for underwater vehicles for the past nine years, the tech world has known about Autonomous Robots for quite some time now, but its implementation in an Underwater environment is relatively new. However with an active international community, this technology holds more potential than anything else to explore the world's oceans. A sponsorship with our club would allow you to gain exposure to this community and tap into the potentials of the tech it is developing. We will serve as an advertiser for you or your organisation to this international community as well as locally.
