Semester 2, AMC MT Main Block 1, AMC MT Main Block 3
This degree is aimed at individuals wanting a career in the international shipping industry. Graduates will become Electro-Technical Officers on commercial vessels. It is suitable for students who complete Australian Year 12 studies (or equivalent), as well as trade personnel and existing seafarers wishing to upgrade their qualifications.

On completion of the course, graduates will have the knowledge and skills required to undertake Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) oral examination for Certificate of Competency as ETO.

Course content includes engineering fundamentals, marine electrical engineering, marine legislation, shipboard safety, controls systems, and management.This course is fully compliant with the education and training requirements of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW), 1978 as amended.

Course Coordinator: Gamini Lokuketagoda /  G.Lokuketagoda@amc.edu.au

  • Year 1 - Pre Sea Engine
  • Year 2 - Engineer Watchkeeper

Understanding marine electrical engineering

1. Demonstrate a broad and coherent understanding of marine electrical engineering by:

1.1. Articulating and applying the electrical engineering principles and concepts to advance their understanding of the marine electrical engineering.

1.2. Recognising that marine electrical engineering is multidisciplinary.

1.3. Applying concepts (for example, from electrical, electronics, control engineering and information technology) in a holistic manner to specific issues relevant to the maritime industry.

1.4. Translating it into solutions for problems and issues associated with the maritime industry.

Knowledge of the marine electrical engineering and its systems

2. Exhibit depth and breadth of marine electrical engineering knowledge by:

2.1. Demonstrating well-developed knowledge in, electrical electronics and control systems engineering, repair and maintenance and emergency procedures to follow when taking care of wellbeing of persons on-board.

2.2. Explaining the role and significance of relevant knowledge in developing and managing marine electrical, electronic and control systems

2.3 Analyse emergency situations and organise effective response.

Inquiry and problem solving

3. Critically analyse and solve specific marine electrical engineering problems by:

3.1. Gathering, synthesising and critically evaluating data /information from a range of sources relevant to the issue at hand.

3.2. Selecting and correctly applying relevant and appropriate practical and/or theoretical techniques to monitor systems and plan effective maintenance of electrical plant and machinery.

3.4. Analysing, correctly interpreting and evaluating quantitative and qualitative data in order to apply knowledge to marine electrical engineering studies, problems and issues.

Communication

4. Be effective communicators of engineering by:

4.1. Using appropriate written and oral forms to communicate understanding of concepts and principles of marine electrical, electronics and control engineering, repair and maintenance with the key stake holders of the industry, such as shipping companies, classification societies, charterers, flag states, port states etc.

4.2. Being aware of the importance of selecting appropriate means of communication with the wider community for the safe operation of ships and protection of the marine environment.

Personal and professional responsibility

5. Be accountable for their own learning and work by:

5.1. Being independent and self-directed learners

5.2. Working effectively, responsibly and safely in an individual or team context.

5.3. Demonstrating knowledge of the regulatory frameworks relevant to the marine environment.

5.4. Personally practising ethical conduct in your work.

Career outcomes

The Bachelor of Applied Science (Marine Electrical Engineering) is the recognised pathway to becoming an AMSA certified electro-technology officer. This degree provides additional knowledge and skills that will be of benefit to students seeking a career at sea. The degree will also equip professional engineering officers with the additional knowledge and skills that they are likely to require to take up senior shore-based professional positions such as:

  • Governmental or intergovernmental regulators and organisations such as AMSA, EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency), IMO (International Maritime Organization)
  • Senior position in a shipyard
  • Fleet manager in a shipping company
  • Marine superintendent or safety manager in a shipping company
  • Product, R&D, sales and service managers in companies supplying maritime equipment
  • Surveyor in a Classification Society
  • Marine Surveyor with a Port State Control  authority such as AMSA
  • Work in Marine insurance companies
  • Maritime Education and Training, research and teaching positions

Professional Recognition

The nested Advanced Diploma of Applied Science (Marine Electrical Engineering) is approved by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) for eligibility towards the following Certificates of Competency: Electro-technology Officer.
