Research at AMC
Research encompasses activities that increase the sum of human knowledge. Research is different from normal undergraduate study. Students undertake their own creative work on a systematic basis. Research study must be original work. It should have investigation as its primary objective.
The Australian Maritime College is a national leader in marine and maritime-related research. AMC's diversity and areas of expertise create a unique environment for research reflected by the three National Centres (NC):
- NC Marine Conservation and Resource Sustainability
- Marine Environment Research Facilities
- NC Maritime Engineering and Hydrodynamics
- Cavitation Research Laboratory
- Model Test Basin
- Towing Tank
- Centre for Maritime Simulations
- NC Ports & Shipping
- Maritime Business & International Logistics
- Ocean Seafaring
In addition to the National Centres, there is a specialist research unit, the Maritime Transport Policy Centre (MTPC), which is tasked with addressing issues in the shipping industry. The MTPC provides opportunities for graduate research in an area not available before at AMC.
