Curtis Graham, Ocean Engineering Student
This degree program is available to students who have completed years 1 and 2 in the Bachelor of Engineering (Naval Architecture) at Flinders University, South 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.

  • 1 Solve complex technical problems using engineering techniques, tools, and resources through the application of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
  • 2 Apply systematic engineering design and analysis processes to solve complex maritime engineering problems.
  • 3 Critically evaluate current developments, advanced technologies, and emerging issues to create innovative solutions for the maritime engineering industry.
  • 4 Manage maritime engineering projects using systematic approaches, soft skills, and effective communication in the professional and lay domains.
  • 5 Practice the personal attributes of a professional engineer by implementing ethical and sustainable engineering practices and professional accountability.
  • Bluefin: Maritime Engineering

    Often described as a degree highlight, this experience gives students the chance to undertake a series of hands-on projects at sea. Take a five-day voyage on our 35-metre training vessel. You’ll engage in marine operations and discover issues unique to the deep-sea environment. Watch video

    Become a Student Ambassador

    Improve your communication, teamwork and leadership skills, meet new people, inspire and help others, and developing lasting friendships and networks as a student ambassador. Our ambassadors proudly represent the University throughout Tasmania in schools, at University and community events, and support a range of recruitment and engagement activities. Through the Student Ambassador Program you will have many opportunities for training and professional development, experience in real-world community engagement and outreach, networking, and public speaking, plus end up with a key point of distinction on your CV.

    We have strong collaborative connections with the Australian maritime and shipbuilding industry. This means that when you study at AMC, you’ll get real-work, hands-on experience that you won’t find anywhere else.

    The growing maritime, defence, marine and offshore sectors are an exciting and strategic area of growth for AMC and the University of Tasmania. We are a strategic partner in the Naval Shipbuilding College, where we collaborate with industry, government and academia to deliver the expertise and workforce required for Australia’s continuous naval shipbuilding program. Our ties with the maritime and shipbuilding industry provide our students with unmatched opportunities to connect with potential employers and gain real-work, hands-on experience before graduating.

    A minimum of 12 weeks real-life work experience is a mandatory requirement of your AMC Engineering qualification. Professional work placements provide students with the opportunity to apply newly acquired skills to a practical working environment. You will also demonstrate advanced knowledge and comprehension of your chosen engineering specialisation.

    During this stage of your engineering degree you will demonstrate your ability to resolve complex work-related problems under supervision of qualified engineers. You will engage in various facets of engineering, and can observe and appreciate the attitudes, responsibilities, and ethics expected of engineers.

    This work experience is undertaken in the unit JEE493 Engineering Professional Practice.

    Career outcomes

    From a young age, Alec Rosanoff has been interested in Australia’s maritime industry and undertook a Bachelor of Engineering (Naval Architecture) at AMC. Alec joined the National Shipbuilding College’s Workforce Register in 2019 while he was still at university and has now secured the position of Graduate Engineer with ASC.

    Naval Architecture

    The Bachelor of Engineering (Naval Architecture) with Honours prepares students for careers in the shipbuilding industry, designing and constructing luxury super yachts, sailing and power craft, destroyers and patrol boats for the defence industry, underwater vehicles and submarines, and big ocean cruiseliners; the high-speed ferry industry; insurance sector; and marine consultancy firms. It is also an excellent gateway to a career in government in the areas of commercial shipping, transport policy and administration.

    Ocean Engineering

    The Bachelor of Engineering (Ocean Engineering) with Honours prepares students for careers designing and managing the installation of offshore, subsea and coastal structures for the oil and gas industry, in particular the offshore industry; the renewable energy industry; coastal and environmental engineering; marine consultancy firms; and ocean research organisations.

    Marine and Offshore Engineering

    The Bachelor of Engineering (Marine and Offshore Engineering) with Honours is unique to AMC and focuses on the design, manufacture, deployment and commissioning of machinery and systems associated with the marine and offshore industries. Marine systems focus on the selection, deployment and commissioning of machinery, mechanical and electrical systems and operational systems designed to support the ship and underwater vehicle industry.
