There has never been a better time for women to take up exciting careers in one of engineering’s most challenging and rewarding fields – Maritime Engineering. To increase female participation in maritime engineering programmes, the National Centre for Maritime Engineering and Hydrodynamics (NCMEH), Australia’s premier maritime engineering facility at the University of Tasmania’s specialist institute, the Australian Maritime College (AMC), is offering great scholarships to young women. Areas of specialisation are: Marine and Offshore Systems, Ocean Engineering and Naval Architecture.

A number of scholarships are available.


Scholarships will be awarded to domestic female students who are commencing study on the Launceston campus in Semester 1, 2021, for any undergraduate maritime engineering courses with specialisations in naval architecture, ocean engineering or marine and offshore engineering offered by the NCMEH, who meet the Australian Tertiary Admission Ranking ATAR 70 or above (OP14 or above) in 2020.

Applicants who are not Year 12 students in 2020 must apply for the scholarship prior to 31 October 2020 and provide proof of ATAR and any previous higher education results, once available.
