Application Information

Mechatronics competes annually in the RoboSub competition during the summer in Point Loma and provides a hands-on experience to all members as well as networking and leadership opportunities. We're looking for students with initiative, curiosity, and perseverance.

As an official member you are expected to:

  • complete projects within a timely manner

  • attend all meetings

  • assist with pool testing

  • work a minimum of 5-10 hours every week 


As applicants, you will be considered for an interview to join as a Mechatronics Recruit. This does NOT mean you are officially part of the team. As a Recruit, if you are demonstrated to be a committed member, you will be invited back as an official member following your first semester with the team.

Business Applicants Only:

Apply online to be considered for the Business team. You are also welcome to attend our open meetings held at the beginning of the semester (details below).

Mechanical, Electrical, and Software Team Applicants:

We hold an open meeting at the start of the semester for mechanical, electrical, and software team applicants. Attendance to the open meeting and participation will be considered part of the interview process (if you can't attend, you are still able to apply).


Applicants shall complete a task (announced at the open meeting and unique to each discipline) to the best of their abilities along with guidance from our leads.
