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 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 new Master of Marine Engineering is flexible, and co-designed with defence partners. 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 and study paths.

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

This degree is delivered in steps. Exit paths will be available after six and 12 months of full-time study, at which points you’ll receive a Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma in Marine Engineering.

Dual Master of Marine Engineering with ENSTA Bretagne

As part of the marine engineering program, the University of Adelaide offers a dual 1.5-year Master of Marine Engineering program at the University of Adelaide and ENSTA Bretagne in France. Students spend one semester in Brest, France, one semester in Adelaide and a third semester in a jointly-supervised industry internship. The new dual program will feed directly into the defence engineering skills base available to South Australia and France. Graduates receive two internationally-recognised qualifications—a Master of Marine Engineering from the University of Adelaide and a Master of Science in Marine Engineering, Surface Ships and Submarines from ENSTA Bretagne.
Intending students should consult with the program coordinator prior to commencement to check whether particular courses or projects will be available.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
