    Bachelor of Maritime Engineering (Specialisation) (Honours) - AUT [24V2]


    This degree program is available to students who have completed years 1 and 2 in the Bachelor of Engineering (Maritime Majors) at the Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand.
    Delivered through the Australian Maritime College (AMC), the Bachelor of Maritime Engineering (Specialisation) (Honours) will guide you towards a thriving career in the maritime industry.  Your studies will focus on one of three maritime industry specialisations: Naval Architecture, Ocean Engineering, or Marine and Offshore Engineering.

    Your education will include access to world-class training and research facilities. You will benefit from AMC's industry connections and experience, providing you with a competitive edge as a graduate.

    Naval Architecture

    Naval Architecture focuses on the design and construction of everything from submarines and naval ships to luxury yachts, ferries, and cargo vessels. Across multiple branches of engineering, you can gain expertise in the shipping, high-speed, offshore, defence, underwater and recreational industries.

    Ocean Engineering

    Dive into advanced studies of the ocean environment and the conditions that impact the life cycle of marine structures. Ocean Engineering focuses on the design, construction and operation of offshore, subsea and coastal structures. You will also learn about applied wave mechanics, underwater technology and offshore renewable energy concepts.

    Marine and Offshore Engineering

    This specialisation focuses on the design, maintenance, and management of mechanical and mechanical-electrical systems. You'll also learn about diverse maritime engineering topics from oil and gas exploration and extraction to submarine cabling, wind farms and wave power.

    The Bachelor of Maritime Engineering (Specialisation) (Honours) programme is a distinctive Maritime Engineering degree and the only of its kind in the Southern hemisphere. The four-year programme is accredited by Engineers Australia and is aligned with the needs of industry, opening up a world of possible careers for professionally qualified maritime engineers who can provide innovative and creative solutions within the Australian and international maritime industry. The degree has a strong practical approach using AMC's specialist facilities. Within the first two years of study, compulsory units in the degree cover the fundamental aspects of maritime engineering, after which students specialise in one of the following:

    • naval architecture, focusing on the design and construction of vessels within the shipping, high-speed, offshore, military, underwater and recreational industries;
    • ocean engineering, focusing on the design of offshore structures, subsea and coastal installations for sustainable development in the maritime environment; or
    • marine and offshore engineering, focusing on the design, deployment, commissioning and management of mechanical and mechanical-electrical systems associated with the shipping, marine and offshore oil and gas industries.

    The final year of the program at AQF8 consists of capstone projects such as research project and design project. The integration of experiential learning, application of authentic real-world learning to problem solving and professional skills will enable students to apply to these capstone honours projects.

See the English Language Requirements page for more information.

    General Entry Requirements

    This degree program is available to students who have completed years 1 and 2 in the Bachelor of Engineering (Maritime Majors) at the Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand.

    Course Specific Requirements

    This course does not have any course specific requirements.

    English Program Requirements

    • All methods of meeting University of Tasmania English language requirements have a validity period of 2 years unless involving a country specific qualification as listed below.
    • Each course offered by the University of Tasmania has a minimum English language requirement for entry as listed below. Applicants must also meet the academic entry requirements for each course.
    • Applicants who qualify from a University of Tasmania program, and intend to gain professional registration to become a practitioner in Australia, may need to meet the relevant Professional Accrediting Agency's English language registration standard.
    • In exceptional circumstances or cases not covered by the categories outlined below, multiple forms of evidence may be considered on a case by case basis by the Executive Director, Student Operations in consultation with the Director, Academic Quality and Standards.
    • The University reserves the right to require that any applicant be required to undergo a test of English language.


    Naval Architecture

    The Bachelor of Engineering (Naval Architecture) with Honours prepares students for careers in the shipbuilding industry, designing and constructing luxury super yachts, sailing and power craft, destroyers and patrol boats for the defence industry, underwater vehicles and submarines, and big ocean cruiseliners; the high-speed ferry industry; insurance sector; and marine consultancy firms. It is also an excellent gateway to a career in government in the areas of commercial shipping, transport policy and administration.

    Ocean Engineering

    The Bachelor of Engineering (Ocean Engineering) with Honours prepares students for careers designing and managing the installation of offshore, subsea and coastal structures for the oil and gas industry, in particular the offshore industry; the renewable energy industry; coastal and environmental engineering; marine consultancy firms; and ocean research organisations.

    Marine and Offshore Engineering

    The Bachelor of Engineering (Marine and Offshore Engineering) with Honours is unique to AMC and focuses on the design, manufacture, deployment and commissioning of machinery and systems associated with the marine and offshore industries. Marine systems focus on the selection, deployment and commissioning of machinery, mechanical and electrical systems and operational systems designed to support the ship and underwater vehicle industry.

    There are many exciting developments being driven by increased fuel costs and the need to lower the environmental impact of vessels and oil rigs. You can get involved in engineering alternative marine power systems or improving crude oil extraction to reduce emissions while maximising yield.
