MIT Proto Ventures Program: A new approach to venture formation inside MIT. Learn more and read FAQs


The MIT Marine Robotics Team (MRT) pursues projects related to robotics, ocean exploration, and marine technology. MRT is focused on facilitating hands-on engineering experience for its members and fostering a community of people who like to build things and learn from each other.

The team works on research-based projects with innovative aspects that members are excited about. One of their main objectives as a student-run team is to provide the resources for undergraduates to learn how to apply engineering principles and to develop design skills.

Team Goals

  • Provide opportunities and resources for members to gain hands-on engineering experience with both design and fabrication
  • Build teamwork skills
  • Project management and organizational experience
  • Explore ocean engineering and its relationship with other disciplines
  • Work on interesting research-based projects with directed applications
