The Graduate Certificate in Maritime Engineering (Naval Engineering) degree program is designed to provide engineering graduates with in-depth exposure to a wide range of subjects relevant to the development and procurement of maritime engineering systems.

The course has been specifically designed to provide a flexible learning approach through interactive online study. In addition, some units are also available for on-campus study.

Individual units will also be available to professionals who may not wish to enrol in the program but who may wish to develop expertise in a particular area for professional development purposes.  

This programme articulates to the J6Z1 Graduate Diploma in Maritime Engineering (Naval Engineering).

The National Centre for Maritime Engineering and Hydrodynamics' 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 Graduate Certificate of Engineering (Naval Engineering) degree is targeted at engineering professionals already in the workforce, who wish to pursue or develop a career in Maritime Engineering and enables students to develop their knowledge in areas related to marine vessels or submarines.

Career outcomes

All programmes lead on to greater employment opportunities, and via articulation to coursework Masters, higher degree study opportunities through industry-relevant research projects.
