Keyvan Sartipi

One of AMC Search’s newest team members is tasked with helping organisations test and develop their designs using AMC’s hydrodynamic facilities and expertise.

Business Development Manager, Keyvan Sartipi, is well placed to do this, having graduated from AMC in 2009 as the year’s top Bachelor of Ocean Engineering 1st Class Honours student.

During his studies he not only used the facilities himself to test and optimise designs, but also served as a technical ‘tour guide’ to explain their application to visitors.

Between graduating and his appointment at AMC Search earlier this year, Keyvan spent six years in the offshore oil and gas industry in Western Australia, gathering engineering design and project engineering experience.

Whilst working, his curiosity for broader engineering insight led him to complete a Civil Engineering Bachelor degree by correspondence.

In July this year he was recognised nationally for his achievements, winning an Engineers Australia 'Most Innovative Young Engineers' award for pioneering an analysis methodology and engineering tools for a new way of completing pipelay. His achievements eliminated a major threat to the delivery of an offshore project.

Six months into his role at AMC Search, what’s motivating him?

“A lot! AMC Search enables businesses to access nationally unique scientific and technical services. This helps them innovate but also contributes to AMC’s educational mission, which makes it especially rewarding.”
