This course is offered in collaboration with the Australian Maritime College at the University of Tasmania in Launceston, Tasmania.
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. This course is suited to students interested in the large-scale mechanical and electro-mechanical systems used in the oil and gas industries, such as fuel-injected turbocharged engines, large gas turbine generators, or oil and gas rigs.
Applicants from South West WA will be able to study only the first year (up to eight foundation units) of this degree at ECU's Bunbury Campus, which may include attending a short set of lab sessions at Joondalup Campus by the end of each semester. After completing these eight units, Bunbury students will need to attend ECU's Joondalup Campus to complete the rest of their course. This option is only available for domestic students living in the South West region of WA.
