Research encompasses activities that increase the sum of human knowledge.

AMC is a centre of excellence for maritime and marine research. We are committed to furthering our understanding of how to build and operate the most efficient and sustainable maritime tools and processes. Our research aims to add to the sum of human knowledge, drive innovation, meet the needs of industry and defence and bring broad benefits to society.

We have a unique position as Australia’s national maritime centre with the most advanced maritime research facilities in the Southern Hemisphere. This creates an exceptional environment for facilitating research in diverse areas such as maritime renewable energy, naval architecture, fluid dynamics, offshore engineering, human centred design, sustainable ports and underwater robotics.
