In August 1998, Santa Clara University conducted a marine archeological expedition off the coast of Alaska with the use of a modified Deep Ocean Engineering phantom XTL underwater remotely operated vehicle. The mission goals were to locate a lost whaling fleet that sank near Barrow, Alaska in 1871 and to test NASA's Mars Pathfinder 3D mapping technology for use in marine science. This paper reviews Santa Clara's undergraduate engineering program in mission systems design and its use of remote extreme environment projects to entice the students to push their engineering talent and experience the process of delivering a product that satisfies requirements and performs real scientific research. The paper then describes the mission and accomplishments of the Jeremy Project as a case study of this educational philosophy
