Category: Events


Date: June 10 - 14, 2024

Description: Participants will be introduced to the underwater robots while gaining hands on experience prepping, ballasting, deploying and piloting. This is an exciting opportunity for undergraduate students with little to no experience using this equipment as part of their courses or laboratories. The Marine Technology Glider Workshop is designed to offer students a chance to not only learn about underwater gliders, but also deploy the equipment to gather data applied to various investigations.

Scholarships: MTS is pleased to offer scholarships to cover registration fees (up to $1,650) and travel fees (up to $500, limited to the first 20 eligible students) for the Rutgers University and Northwestern Michigan College Summer Workshops. To be eligible, you must be a current student concentrating on marine technology, marine engineering, and/or marine science. To apply, fill out the online application form and submit a recommendation letter by April 15, 2024.
