Do you have a head for maths and science and love solving problems? Love the ocean and want to travel? Get paid a great salary for doing what you love.
Our four year Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degrees are accredited by Engineers Australia, the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and the International Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST). You will have access to world class training and research facilities, providing you with a competitive edge as graduates.
Choose from one of three of our Maritime Engineering specialisations:
Can you picture yourself designing floating systems for the oil and gas industry, or working on the design and construction of submarines? There are many design and construction fields for a naval architect to work within including; high-speed craft, leisure craft, sailing and power craft, super yachts, oil and gas floating systems, destroyers and patrol boats for the defence industry, underwater vehicles and submarines.
Ship and Underwater Vehicles – focuses on the design and construction of ships ranging from high speed ferries to naval frigates, underwater vehicles and submarines.
Yacht and Small Crafts – focuses on the design and construction of small craft ranging from recreational craft to luxury cruisers and sailing yachts.

Ocean and Subsea Structures – you would be designing and managing the installation of offshore, subsea and coastal structures for the oil and gas industry, renewable energy industry and also consultancy firms specialising in coastal engineering, underwater vehicles, and port and harbour design.

Marine and Offshore Engineering
Marine Systems - focuses on the selection, deployment and commissioning of machinery, machinery systems and operational systems designed to support the ship and underwater vehicle industry.
Offshore Systems - are the same as marine systems but rather than supporting the ship and underwater industry, they support the offshore oil and gas industry. You could be working with high speed ferries, the defence industry, and the oil and gas industry alternative energy and the power generation sectors with Australia or internationally.

This program allows you to combine your studies with practical experience in your chosen specialisation; Naval Architecture, Ocean Engineering, Marine and Offshore Engineering. Working under the supervision of professional engineers, the program allows you to evaluate your career choice and gain industry experience. You will alternate periods of full time study with periods of full time paid work experience but you must maintain a credit average throughout your degree to remain in the program.

Alternative entry pathways exist if you do not meet the direct entry requirements into the Bachelor of Engineering degrees. There are two particular pathways into engineering, the Diploma of University Studies (Engineering) and the Associate Degree in Engineering (Specialisation).
Diploma of University Studies (Engineering)
The Diploma of University Studies (Engineering) is designed as an alternative entry pathway to university study. In this specialisation, students study units which provide the skills and knowledge related to their intended degree and are provided with additional support to maximise their chances of success. Completion of the Diploma will provide achievement at Introductory level in two units.
Find out more about the Diploma of University Studies (Engineering).
Associate Degree in Engineering (Specialisation)
Broaden your skills and increase your knowledge across a range of industry relevant topics that focus on practical and design-based engineering specialities, including maritime engineering.
This degree will lead you to a career as an Engineer Associate, which means you will have more experience than an entry level engineer and more responsibility on projects. You could use it as a pathway to further your learning with a Bachelor Degree in Engineering. There are two other entry points:
- Successful completion of the Bachelor of General Studies
- Successful completion of a VET Certificate IV and two years technical
Find out more about the Associate Degree in Engineering (Specialisation).
We are partners with a number of world class institutions within Australia and New Zealand, which means you have the opportunity to experience two world class institutions with the Bachelor of Engineering 2+2 program.
Collaborations exist with the following institutions:
- Flinders University, South Australia
- Edith Cowan University (ECU), Western Australia
- Auckland University of Technology (AUT), Auckland, New Zealand
Your first two years of your degree will be completed on campus at the partnered university, with the final two years of your degree to be completed on campus at AMC in Launceston, Tasmania.
Rat Trap Boat at AMC
First year engineering students at AMC put their project skills to the test by creating a propelled boat literally using a rat trap.
