Since our inception, we have always maintained connections with industry. Our courses are designed specifically to meet the needs of those involved in the different areas of the maritime industry. Continuing liaison with key personnel insures relevance is maintained as new technology and processes emerge.

Work-integrated learning across undergraduate and postgraduate learning and research is an important feature of many of our courses. Seafaring students must complete certain components of their courses on board ship under the supervision of senior officers; engineering students undertake a compulsory period of work experience and many of the research projects undertaken by students are in response to real-life situations and problems.

Time in industry is incorporated as a basic component of the ARC Research Training Centre for Naval Design and Manufacturing (RTCNDM), which is centred here at AMC, and is a key element of our Defence and Design precinct.

Some of AMCs industry links are below:
