Your Maritime Future

Choose your career

Maritime Engineer

Do you enjoy maths, physics, designing, building?

Maritime Engineers design and construct ships, submarines, autonomous vessels, luxury yachts, navy warships, ocean renewable energy sources, marine electrical and mechanical systems, and oceanic infrastructure.

Global Logistics

Are you interested in international law, economics, or business (with global career opportunities)?

Global Logistics Officers and Managers have the specialist knowledge to work in a vast array of international industries organising large-scale global trade and keeping the world moving.

Ship Engineer or Deck Officer

Do you love the sea and want to drive or run massive ships?

Ocean Seafarers are navigation or marine engine experts who drive or operate massive ships across the sea. They lead the teams who work onboard cargo ships, science expedition vessels, ocean tugs, and cruise ships.

Maritime Engineers, Global Logistics Managers and Ocean Seafarers

are needed right now and over the next 30 years

to grow Australia's ocean energy renewables, maritime economies and shipbuilding industries.

A degree from the Australian Maritime College will take you there.

Waves of opportunities

Build dreams not just ships

Ocean Renewable Energy

Offshore wind has been earmarked as critical if Australia is to decarbonise and meet its net zero emissions targets, and Victoria has a particularly ambitious target of generating about 20 percent of its energy needs from offshore wind within a decade.

Keen to capitalise, a pipeline of industry heavyweights have announced their plans to develop offshore wind projects in Gippsland, which is on course to be home to Australia's first offshore wind project.

Maritime Operations

In times of conflict and crisis, our economic sovereignty and national security are dependent on Australian seafarers working on Australian ships.

Protecting and growing Australia’s maritime sector and seafaring workforce is vital to our economic sovereignty and national security.
