Advance your engineering career with the technical skills to work in maritime sectors. The Graduate Certificate in Maritime Engineering is designed to provide engineering graduates with in-depth exposure to a wide range of subjects relevant to maritime engineering systems.

This program is aimed at engineering professionals already in the workforce, but with limited exposure to the maritime engineering sector.

Our specialist coursework is designed by experienced maritime engineers and researchers. Delivered through interactive online study resources, this course provides a flexible learning mode for students who wish to continue working while studying.

The Graduate Certificate in Maritime Engineering provides engineering graduates with an introduction to a wide range of subjects relevant to the development and procurement of marine vessels and systems.

This course is constructed for those that want to raise their knowledge in advanced engineering practice and management, in particular current Engineers who wish to gain knowledge in the Maritime sector. This program can be used for Continuing Professional Development.

  • 1 Apply systematic analysis and processes to solve complex technical problems in maritime and wider engineering fields.
  • 2 Apply systematic approaches, soft skills and teamwork to maritime projects in the professional and lay domains.
  • 3 Use evidence-based research to inform decision making and practice with maritime and wider engineering fields.
  • Career outcomes

    Graduates follow careers in technical engineering and management across a broad range of maritime sectors.

    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).
