Their lead instructor, Lt Carl Marin-Ortega RN, presented the CO of the Oxford URNU, Lt Will Jones RN, with a HMS Collingwood crest designed and created using a 3D printer supplied to the System Engineering and Management Unit by the Royal Navy Discovery, Assessment and Rapid Exploitation (DARE) innovation group.

The Guy Hudson Memorial Trust funded the event and was founded in 1997 by the bequest of the late Lieutenant Guy Hudson RNVR.

The Trust exists to ‘further the education of the Officers of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines at Oxford University’ and primarily supports the Hudson Fellowship – an annual appointment of an officer of the Naval Service to the University of Oxford.

2018 is 'The Year of Engineering' in the Royal Navy and Oxford is one of 15 URNUs located across the UK offering opportunities to 750 undergraduates from the country’s leading universities.

The URNU's mission is: "To develop an understanding of the Naval Service in undergraduates, so that those who go into civilian employment are positive advocates thereof and to facilitate a Naval Career for those who choose one."

The URNU is a chance to experience military life without commitment and gain new skills applicable to all walks of life.
