The Electrical Sub-Division is responsible for handling the electrical requirements of the Sensors, Thrusters, On-Boards Computer, Cameras and much much more.
Engineering is solving problems and Mechanical Subdivision works specifically on bringing all possible mechanical advancements in the vehicle to solve a problem.
The Software Subdivision is the subdivision writes over 15,000 lines of code to make the AUV Autonomous,and are responsible for making the AUV capable of completing a certain task underwater.
The Business Subdivision also known as the Non-Technical Subdivision where six sub departments namely Events, Design, Marketing, Media, PR and Web form its backbone.

AUV was a life-changing experience for me. To create the foundation and leading the First Business Team was a challenging task for me. I had great fun working with the hard-working techies as well as the business team. I am always grateful to our senior Varun Mittal for this opportunity. Great to see the team reaching new heights and making us proud.
The team changed a lot in the 5 years i was with the team. From a small team which did a lot of jugaad, to a team which had over 30 members, made multi year plans, it was an exhilarating experience. It's unbelievable that the team that was not able to do buoy without aiming went on to win NIoT and 2nd place in RoboSub in just 5 years. The people in the team I worked with were some of the most stubborn, smartest, hardest working and innovative people I've had the fortune of meeting. They'd sacrifice anything for the team, even sacrifice GPA. Nothing can beat the feeling of camaraderie that grows naturally by working night out after night out, the intense summers, the trips to Marine drive, the sweat and blood poured in the project and most of all, the chindigiri of seniors in giving treats😂. The team took a lot from me, but gave me a lot too: From technical knowledge, to making me more social, more comfortable in talking, etc.

Team AUV has made me what I am. The most important thing I learnt in AUV was leadership. This is something which cannot be learnt in regular school or college curriculum. AUV gave me the chance to develop my skills as a leader and have bonds which I'm going to cherish my entire life.

I worked in the electrical subdivision for around 1 year, during version 4 of Matsya. It was a great learning experience, got to learn and contribute a lot during that. It gives better learning than any lab course in the curriculum, and also gave me opportunity to apply the learnings from courses on live project. Devoting 4-5 hours daily and doing all nighters with highly motivating team has given a lot of memories worth remembering. Everyone should experience association with such a dedicated team atleast once in their college days. This is great initiative to reminisce these moments, and also helpful for current team to know the alumni. Best of luck to current the AUV team and looking forward for a reunion soon:)

Being a member of AUV-IITB Team will always be the spotlight during my undergraduate studies at IIT Bombay. I was very fortunate to be a part of this team right from its inception in 2011 all the way until my graduation in 2015. Looking back at those times, I can clearly see how the team evolved and most importantly how this team moulded me to be a team player and to be the person I am today. All those learnings have greatly helped me in my career.
