QMAST is a student design team that designs and builds autonomous sailboats. The boat is entered in annual competitions that test navigation, tactics and design. During the race, the boat must steer and trim sails based on measurements of the wind, position, and direction without human intervention. MAST has attended various international design competitions and has been credited with various competition awards.
