Help AMC recruit the next generation of maritime engineers
Australia is embarking on its biggest naval ship building program since World War II, with over $90 billion being invested in the design and construction of new ships, submarines, shipyard infrastructure and workforce development.
These decadal long programs are placing significant demand for a highly educated and skilled sovereign workforce, now and into the future.
Despite the Federal Government investment in shipbuilding programs and broader industry commitments, the number of people choosing to study maritime engineering degrees is at an all-time low.
The decline represents a real threat to the Australian maritime industry and sovereign capability needs, and if the trend continues, will compound existing workforce supply pressures. There will simply be not enough graduates to meet the demands of Australian industry.
AMC is the only institution in Australia equipped to deliver the sector with the volume and quality of graduates required long-term.
The only way we can attract students in the volume required is to run bespoke student recruitment campaigns that tell the story of the benefits of studying maritime engineering at AMC.
However, this is expensive and we can not do it alone.
Therefore, AMC is calling on industry to become a co-investor in the future of an Australian sovereign engineering capability, by helping to fund a five-year targeted student recruitment campaign commencing in Q3 2022.
Through AMC Search, a not-for-profit charity organisation, AMC is seeking funding support from industry that will be used to help pay for nationally focused, targeted student recruitment campaigns. The extra funding required is $250,000, and this will part fund a range of activities and programs of engagement including:
To contribute, we are asking industry to support us in one of the following ways:
AMC is seeking the support of three Platinum supporters, investing $30,000
AMC is seeking the support of five Gold Supporters, investing $15,000
AMC is seeking the support of ten Silver Supporters, investing $5,000
AMC is seeking the support of Bronze Supporters who are being asked to invest what they can to the campaign up to the value of $2,000.
