The Master of Engineering (Maritime Design) is a 2 year programme.  This study option enables students to combine maritime engineering technical knowledge with research skills.

It is particularly suited to students who wish to open up career opportunities throughout the maritime industry and further postgraduate study.

Our postgraduate maritime engineering programmes provide engineering graduates with in-depth exposure to a wide range of subjects relevant to the development and procurement of marine systems.

The Maritime Design programme is constructed for engineering graduates not yet in the work force wanting to raise their knowledge in advanced engineering practice and research. It is also available to current Engineers who wish to gain knowledge in the Maritime sector.

All programmes lead on to greater employment and higher degree study opportunities through industry relevant research projects.  International students looking to gain work experience in Australia post-study, are encouraged to apply for this programme.

Career outcomes

The Master of Engineering degree is targeted at engineering professionals already in the workforce, who wish to pursue, or develop a career in the technical management of maritime engineering projects.
