International Competitions

In EEC, we recruit new members every year to participate in international underwater robotic competitions.

International Competition (MATE)

The MATE (Marine Advanced Technology Education) ROV (Remotely-Operated-Vehicle) Competition is an annual global event that attracts participants to create underwater robots (known as Remotely Operated Vehicles or ROVs).

Participants construct a manually-controlled ROV to complete tasks that simulate real-world submarine operations, such as deploying a Float unit to measure ocean depth or activating sprinklers.

International Competition (SAUVC)

The Singapore Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge (SAUVC) is an underwater robotics challenge that focus on autonomy.

The SAUVC challenges participant teams to build an AUV which can perform given tasks. These tasks are simulations of tasks operational AUVs would have to be able to perform.

Training Workshops

EEC conducts annual training workshops for new recruits, covering mechanical design, 3D printing, Laser-cutting, electronics, programming, and Mini-ROVs. 

Industrial Projects

In EEC we have several industrial consultancy projects in which in which our student team applies professional expertise to construct robots designed to address tangible engineering challenges.


We boast a robust network of alumni who have amassed considerable expertise in the realm of start-up management. Should any of our students be nurturing entrepreneurial ideas and find themselves in need of guidance, we encourage you to reach out.

Other Activities

At EEC, we understand that our students have diverse schedules and interests. To accommodate this, we offer a variety of activities, ensuring there's something for everyone. Can't make the big competitions? No worries, we've got smaller ones too.
