This program of study is provided for students who intend to embark on a career in the maritime industry as Marine Engineer Officers on commercial vessels. It provides the knowledge and skills required to safely manage, facilitate, and undertake operation and maintenance linked to the shipboard marine engineering systems. Course content includes marine engineering and systems, vessel structure and operations, cargo and passenger transport, vessel management, marine legislation, marine survey and shipboard safety. The program is designed to integrate with professional short courses and training at sea so that successful students will not only obtain an Advanced Diploma or bachelor degree but also an Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) Certificate of Competency. The program is fully compliant with the training and educational requirements of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW), 2010 as amended. (The amendment took place in Manila in 2010)

Course Coordinator: Dr T M Rabiul Islam

  • 1 Operate the main propulsion system of a ship and maintain the auxiliary systems using marine engineering knowledge to ensure the safety of a commercial ship.
  • 2 Solve marine engineering problems in standard operational and emergency scenarios by interpreting a range of data sources to meet stakeholders requirements.
  • 3 Support the safe operation of a ship and care for its people by using management theories and leadership skills required of an engineering officer.
  • 4 Comply with international maritime regulations and ethical codes into marine engineering practices that contribute to protecting the natural environment and the safety of persons.
  • Career outcomes

    The Advanced Diploma of Applied Science (Marine Engineering) is the recognised pathway to becoming an AMSA certified marine engineering 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
    • Technical manager in a shipping company
    • Marine superintendent or safety manager in a shipping company
    • Product, R&D, sales and service managers in companies manufacturing marine engines and 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

    Accreditation and Professional Recognition

    The Advanced Diploma of Applied Science (Marine Engineering) is approved by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) for eligibility towards the following Certificates of Competency: Engineer Watchkeeper (Trade Entrants).

    Course structure

    The Advanced Diploma of Applied Science (Marine Engineering) requires the completion of 200 credit points as follows:

    Fees & scholarships

    Domestic students

    Commonwealth supported places (CSP)

    Domestic undergraduate students may be eligible for a Commonwealth supported place in this course. If you are offered a Commonwealth supported place, your fees are substantially subsidised by the Australian Government, and you will only be required to pay the student contribution amount for each unit.

    You may be able to defer payment of the student contribution amount by accessing a HECS-HELP loan from the Government. This means you can pay your tuition fees later once you start earning above a specific threshold. For more information, please refer to the Study Assist website.

    The student contribution amount for each unit of study is based on its discipline area. Student contribution amounts are charged for each unit of study, this means that amounts will depend on which units you choose. Find out more about student contribution amounts.

    Detailed fee information for domestic students is available at Scholarships, fees and costs, including additional information in relation to the compulsory Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF).

    International students
