To cope up with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, digitization, robotization, and intelligent automation is a must. Building underwater robots for hydrographic data collection and exploring the huge field of biodiversity can greatly help to fulfill the needs of this sector. Underwater vehicles can contribute immensely to underwater hull inspection and welding, topology scanning, rescue in case of accidents in a remote area, etc. An Underwater Robotics Laboratory will be an effective initiative in this regard. This laboratory is an absolute need to conduct the experimental tasks of the NAME 467 (Control Engineering) course to help students gaining practical knowledge along with theoretical study. Also, this laboratory will be an effective platform for the thesis works of both undergraduate and postgraduate students. This laboratory will be an enormous opportunity for the students to make research on robotics, the automation sector, Artificial Intelligence and make themselves prepared for participating in national and international robotics competitions.
