2023 Opportunity

The Maritime Immersion Camp is an annual opportunity open exclusively to South Australian students in Years 9 - 12. This week long program is offered in partnership with the Naval Shipbuilding College and Le Fevre High School (Maritime Education) and includes an all expenses paid week of marine and maritime activities across South Australia and the AMC in Tasmania.

This hands on, practical camp will have you driving vessels and boats, exploring autonomous underwater vehicles, entering the simulator and driving a virtual ship, meeting university students and lecturers, taking on fun engineering activities, and learning how to survive at sea in a lifeboat amongst a simulated storm, plus so much more!

Your Maritime Future


Design and Build

Maritime Engineers are specialist engineers charged with the design and construction of shipping, submarines, autonomous vessels, luxury yachts, navy ships, ocean renewable energy sources, marine electrical and mechanical systems, and oceanic infrastructure.


Organise and Manage

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.


Operate and Deliver

Ocean Seafarers are navigation or marine engine experts who operate massive ships, navigate the oceans, and travel the world to safely deliver everything from raw materials to our most advanced tech.

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.

The Australian Maritime College and Australian companies want to connect with you and invest in your maritime study and career at the Maritime Futures Event.

Register for Maritime Futures 2022 to attend the event and apply for the AMC Maritime Immersion Camp 2023.

Maritime Wind 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 Wave Energy

The $12 million UniWave200 unit was constructed in Launceston and extensively tested at the Australian Maritime College.

The UniWave200 generates sustainable electricity from the ocean. It converts the energy in ocean waves into clean and zero emission electricity.

A larger unit can be made that generates five times the amount of energy and could be placed off any coastline anywhere in the world.

Ocean Seafaring and Maritime Economy

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.

Maritime Logistics

Ninety per cent of world trade is sent via the oceans, and it takes specialist skills to manage this vast industry.

Global logistics and maritime management professionals are in demand around the world in diverse industries such as shipping ports, logistics, exporting and importing, freight forwarding, manufacturing and government.
