Secure your future in the defence sector

South Australia has a world-class maritime industry base and the sector is growing rapidly. We’re currently witnessing a time of multi-billion dollar spending on submarines and surface ships.

The University of Adelaide is South Australia’s leading university in defence, and partnered with industry both locally and internationally. Whether you’re looking to upskill or change careers, we’ll help match your professional goals to industry objectives.

What will you do?

Our marine engineering programs are structured so students can complete qualifications in steps. This approach lets you complete a Graduate Certificate in Marine Engineering after six months, the Graduate Diploma in Marine Engineering after 12 and a Master of Marine Engineering after 18. You will:

  • develop and enhance prior expertise
  • build highly sought after knowledge and practical skills
  • take core courses intensively, allowing you to complete Submarine Design, Naval Ship Engineering and Systems Engineering within six months
  • choose from a wide range of specialist electives.

Industry-sponsored students will also gain practical experience through workplace projects.

This program is delivered in collaboration with ASC, Australia's builder and sustainer of the Navy's fleet of Collins Class submarines.

Note: consult the program coordinator before you enrol to check whether particular courses or projects will be available.
