                                                             (Ocean Engineering)

                                                             I am from Malaysia.

                                                             I learnt about the Ocean Engineering degree whilst
                                                             studying for a Science degree at the University of
                                                             Tasmania. I did some research and felt that it stood
                                                             out from other engineering degrees. This appealed
                                                             to me, along with the enthusiasm of my friends,
NATIONAL CENTRE FOR MARITIME ENGINEERING AND HYDRODYNAMICS   already in the programme, and I began my second
                                                             degree in maritime engineering studies in 2006.

                                                             As an institute of the University of Tasmania,
                                                             AMC is part of a diverse study environment with
                                                             undergraduate students from over 30 countries.
                                                             The university provides a friendly and welcoming
                                                             environment for students who are living away from
                                                             home for the first time. In the last three years I have
                                                             made many good friends from various cultures
                                                             and found the academic staff to be supportive
                                                             and friendly. Many of the AMC academic staff are
                                                             involved in research within their chosen field. I
                                                             find that this provides students with an enhanced
                                                             understanding of their subject discipline and access
                                                             to the latest developments in the offshore industry.

                                                             Living in Launceston has been really enjoyable. It is
                                                             a scenic city, with four distinct seasons. Commuting
                                                             distances are short and it remains an affordable place
                                                             to live. The lifestyle is laid back with few distractions
                                                             which is good for my studies. When time permits, I
                                                             like to go on road trips to explore the state. Tasmania
                                                             has a lot to offer to the adventurer with its beautiful
                                                             mountain ranges and coastlines.

                                                             AMC has an excellent graduate employment record
                                                             in the offshore industry. Each year a Maritime

                                                             coming from across Australia. The event gives
                                                             students the chance to meet with industry
                                                             representatives face-to-face to discuss work
                                                             experience and career options. Employers recognise
                                                             that AMC’s rigorous degree programme give
                                                             graduates many transferable skills, as well as breadth

                                                             expected to undertake 12 weeks of work experience
                                                             in order to graduate. I have been fortunate to have
Current Student                                              the opportunity to complete my work experience
                                                             with Technip in Malaysia.

B Eng (Ocean Engineering)                                    I have found AMC to offer more than just an
