Growing up I was always around boats and it has been an ongoing passion. I’ve always been interested in maths and science so this is a great combination for me. Read more about Maggie-Rose

Maggie- Rose, AMC Student
This degree program is available to students who have completed years 1 and 2 in the Bachelor of Engineering (Naval Architecture) Honours at Edith Cowan University, Western Australia.
Delivered through the Australian Maritime College (AMC), the Bachelor of Maritime Engineering (Specialisation) (Honours) will guide you towards a thriving career in the maritime industry.  Your studies will focus on one of three maritime industry specialisations: Naval Architecture, Ocean Engineering, or Marine and Offshore Engineering.

Your education will include access to world-class training and research facilities. You will benefit from AMC’s industry connections and experience, providing you with a competitive edge as a graduate.

Naval Architecture

Naval Architecture focuses on the design and construction of everything from submarines and naval ships to luxury yachts, ferries, and cargo vessels. Across multiple branches of engineering, you can gain expertise in the shipping, high-speed, offshore, defence, underwater and recreational industries.

Ocean Engineering

Dive into advanced studies of the ocean environment and the conditions that impact the life cycle of marine structures. Ocean Engineering focuses on the design, construction and operation of offshore, subsea and coastal structures. You will also learn about applied wave mechanics, underwater technology and offshore renewable energy concepts.

Marine and Offshore Engineering

This specialisation focuses on the design, maintenance, and management of mechanical and mechanical-electrical systems. You’ll also learn about diverse maritime engineering topics from oil and gas exploration and extraction to submarine cabling, wind farms and wave power.

The Bachelor of Maritime Engineering (Specialisation) (Honours) programme is a distinctive Maritime Engineering degree and the only of its kind in the Southern hemisphere. The four-year programme is accredited by Engineers Australia and is aligned with the needs of industry, opening up a world of possible careers for professionally qualified maritime engineers who can provide innovative and creative solutions within the Australian and international maritime industry. The degree has a strong practical approach using AMC's specialist facilities. Within the first two years of study, compulsory units in the degree cover the fundamental aspects of maritime engineering, after which students specialise in one of the following:

  • naval architecture, focusing on the design and construction of vessels within the shipping, high-speed, offshore, military, underwater and recreational industries;
  • ocean engineering, focusing on the design of offshore structures, subsea and coastal installations for sustainable development in the maritime environment; or
  • marine and offshore engineering, focusing on the design, deployment, commissioning and management of mechanical and mechanical-electrical systems associated with the shipping, marine and offshore oil and gas industries.

The final year of the program at AQF8 consists of capstone projects such as research project and design project. The integration of experiential learning, application of authentic real-world learning to problem solving and professional skills will enable students to apply to these capstone honours projects.
