The Master of 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.

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


The naval engineering and maritime technology management programs are aimed at engineering professionals already in the workforce but with limited exposure to the maritime engineering sector, and who wish to continue working while studying to gain a relevant professional qualification.

The Naval Engineering specialisation enables students to develop their maritime engineering knowledge in areas related to marine vessels or submarines.

All programs lead on to greater employment and higher degree study opportunities through industry relevant research projects.

Career outcomes

The Master of Maritime 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.
