AMC will deliver the first courses from its Sydney study centre this November, offering exciting career development opportunities for professionals in the maritime and defence industries.

AMC is Australia’s national institute for maritime training, education, research and consultancy based in Launceston, Tasmania, and recently announced its expansion into Sydney with the establishment of a study centre at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour.

Two postgraduate degrees – the Master of Engineering in Maritime Design and MBA in Maritime and Logistics Management – will be delivered from this iconic waterfront base from 2018.

In the meantime, a pilot program of two short courses in Supply Chain Management and Fundamentals of Naval Architecture will be delivered in an intensive, five-day format this November.

AMC Principal, Professor Neil Bose said the courses would be delivered by a team of highly-skilled staff and represent an opportunity to receive industry feedback prior to the official opening of the AMC centre in Sydney in January 2018.

“These courses are designed to provide essential insight and overview into the maritime engineering, maritime business and international logistics fields,” AMC Principal Neil Bose said.

“AMC is excited to be able to offer its internationally-recognised maritime training and education from the Australian National Maritime Museum, right in the heart of Sydney’s waterfront precinct. We look forward to establishing our presence here, and working with the surrounding Defence, government and private industries to help develop our maritime leaders and shape the future of this vital sector.”

Completion of the short courses and assessments will provide credit towards formal qualifications within AMC’s postgraduate courses.
