If you love the water and are interested in a career in the maritime or marine industries, the Australian Maritime College (AMC) provides the training and qualifications that will get you there.
Whether you want to captain a large vessel, safeguard the world’s marine environments or design super structures on the ocean, you’ll be taught by industry leading experts and have access to some of the best facilities in the world.
National Centre for Ports and Shipping (NCPS) is responsible for education, training and research in the areas of maritime business, logistics, technology management, and professional seafaring qualifications in both the international and coastal shipping sectors. Seafaring graduates are employed aboard both domestic and international ships, as well as in pilotage, marine surveying, terminal operations and stevedoring. Maritime and Logistics Management graduates are engaged in everything from cargo handling and logistics, to maritime law and importing and exporting.
The National Centre for Maritime Engineering and Hydrodynamics (NCMEH) offers Australia's premier maritime engineering degrees to service the needs of the maritime industry. Studies focus on Ocean Engineering, Naval Architecture or Marine and Offshore Systems and equip graduates with the skills required to design, build and test some of the largest structures on the planet.
Graduates are employed worldwide, designing and managing huge installations for the offshore oil and gas industry, or following careers specialising in coastal engineering, underwater vehicles, and port and harbour design. Naval Architects are employed in the Australian high-speed ferry industry and marine surveying organisations, as well as in companies that design and build leisure craft, sailing and power yachts.
The National Centre for Marine Conservation and Resource Sustainability (NCMCRS) brings together the study of natural sciences with policy and management. Combining these study areas leads to an understanding of how to sustainably manage the marine environment for future generations. Careful planning and good policy decisions will ensure our oceans and coast lines are managed sustainably into the future.
Graduates are employed in professional, scientific and technical jobs across a broad range of marine related areas. This includes coastal and marine tourism, wild fisheries management and operations, seafood industries, aquaculture, shipping, the offshore industries, non-governmental organisations and all levels of government, from local to global areas including policy development and marine parks.
