About Us

The pioneer and multidisciplinary project from the University of Puerto Rico, RUMarino, will compete in 19th International RoboSub Competition in San Diego, CA. We provide students with a unique opportunity to work in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Our members range across different areas of study: from engineering fields, such as Mechanical, Electrical, Computer, and Industrial and to business fields, such as Marketing and Human Relations. RoboSub, co-sponsored by the US Office of Naval Research (ONR), intends to make progress in the development of autonomous marine vehicles (AUVs).

Our goal is to design and manufacture an autonomous underwater pirate-vehicle that will execute and fulfill the tasks set down in the competition.



The IEEE Computer Society traces its origins to the 1946 formation of the Subcommittee on Large-Scale Computing Devices (LCD) of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE). Five years later, the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) formed its Professional Group on Electronic Computers (PGEC).

The principal volunteer officers of both these groups were designated chairs. The AIEE and the IRE merged in 1963 to become the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The respective committee and group of the predecessor organizations combined to form the modern IEEE Computer Society. The society's principal volunteer officer has been designated as president since 1971. Now the Computer Society will celebrate its 70th anniversary in 2016.

The IEEE Computer Society, Chapter of University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez Campus was founded 1994 already serving long years in the UPRM Campus. It is the leading branch in the areas of computer science, computing and technology. We are dedicated to advancing technology, alongside the theory and applications of computers.
