Beginning in fall 2008, the MIT Sea Grant College Program entered into a collaboration with Total Corporation in Paris to create an undergraduate course at Université Pierre at Marie Curie (UPMC) in Paris that focused on MIT Sea Grant’s remote operated vehicle (ROV) — Sea Perch.
The UPMC course introduces students to the mechanics of building the ROV and culminates in sending the hand-built ROVs on missions. The final presentations for the second year of this course will take place May 28, at the Institut Jean Le Rond d'Alembert at the UPMC. Twenty-four second year students will participate.
