We are CUSB.

We are an engineering project team that designs and builds a fourteen foot, single occupant, purely solar powered speed boat for the intercollegiate Solar Splash competition.

Founded in 2015, we are one of Cornell University's youngest project teams. Despite this, we provide students of all ages and majors with practical experience, a cooperative team environment, and a chance to apply their knowledge to modern engineering problems without requiring any prior experience.

Making a splash.

We had a good run at our first time competing at Solar Splash, bringing back both the Rookie of the Year 2019 and Outstanding Solar System Design awards.

A completely new hull, outboard motor, and cruise-control Arduino throttle are just a few big projects we plan on finishing this year.
