Progress your career into specialist areas of maritime engineering including naval architecture, fluid mechanics and marine and offshore systems. Your studies will combine learning that is specific to the design and construct of maritime vessels and systems with advanced studies in management, project planning and research. You will graduate with an understanding of complex marine systems and the ability to lead engineering projects in the maritime industry. This course is accredited by Engineers Australia.

This program is aimed at engineering professionals already in the workforce, but with limited exposure to the maritime engineering sector. Our graduates secure employment in advanced technical and management roles in maritime engineering. All programs lead to greater employment and higher degree study opportunities through industry-relevant research projects.

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

If you are a professional engineer with a 4-year bachelor’s degree in any engineering discipline, this program will change the course of your career.

  • 1 Design and formulate solutions to complex technical problems in both the maritime and wider engineering fields using systematic analysis and processes.
  • 2 Manage complex maritime projects using systematic approaches, soft skills and teamwork in professional and lay domains.
  • 3 Create innovative solutions for maritime and wider engineering fields by critically researching current developments, advanced technologies and emerging issues.
  • 4 Practice high-level personal autonomy and accountability considering ethical and sustainable engineering practices in accordance with Engineers Australia standards.
  • Course structure

    Fees & scholarships

    Domestic students

    Options for this course

    This is a full-fee course, which means you’ll need to pay the entire amount for your studies. Commonwealth supported places are not available in this postgraduate course. However, there are still support options available for eligible students to help you manage the cost of studying this course.

    You may be able to fund all or part of your tuition fees by accessing a FEE-HELP loan from the Australian Government. FEE-HELP is a loan scheme that assists domestic full-fee students to pay for University, which is repaid through the Australian Tax System once you earn above a repayment threshold. This means you’ll only have to start repaying the loan once you start earning above a specific amount.

    Our scholarships and prizes program also offers more than 400 scholarships across all areas of study. You can even apply for multiple scholarships in one easy application.
