Edith Cowan University ECU

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00279B

Offered in collaboration with the Australian Maritime College at the University of Tasmania in Launceston, Tasmania, this specialist engineering course will guide you towards a thriving career in the maritime industry. Through this course the students focus on one of the three maritime industry specialisations: Naval Architecture, Ocean Engineering, or Marine and Offshore Engineering. Marine and Offshore engineers are involved with the design, manufacture, deployment and commissioning of systems associated with the marine and offshore oil and gas industries. Naval architects are professional engineers who design and oversee the construction and repair of marine craft and various offshore structures. Ocean engineers are involved in the design of offshore structures such as oil and gas platforms or subsea pipelines, as well as the wide range of infrastructure associated with the ports and harbour facilities and submersible vehicles required to service them. The first two years of this course are studied at ECU's Joondalup Campus. The final two years are delivered at the University of Tasmania's Australian Maritime College in Launceston. Students will be required to relocate to Launceston for this latter portion of the course.
