Continuing our strong connection to industry  ensures our offering’s relevance is maintained, particularly as new technology, global challenges and processes emerge.

To connect with AMC through any of the following means, we encourage you to make contact with our Industry Coordinator by email to talk about how we can work together throughout the coming year.

Presentations and events

AMC frequently hosts a range of industry panels, guest lecture presentations, workshops and partnership events, allowing maritime relevant leaders and influencers to network directly with our students.

Our events intend on creating a platform to promote maritime organisations & future projects, career and graduate opportunities, support students in their transition to employment, highlight industry trends and improve the quality of future job candidates by communicating workforce skill expectations. Industry events will be updated on our webpage.

Industry Engagement

Integrated industry opportunities within out AMC courses aim to link students to industry across a range of disciplines as either compulsory accreditation requirements or electives.

We work with students and academic staff to support maximum industry engagement as a part of the study experience, with some of Australia’s top maritime employers, both in and out of the classroom.

We seek to identify and develop opportunities for students through:

  • Guest lectures from industry specialists
  • Professional Experience Placement opportunities
  • Summer internship programs
  • Graduate programs & employment
  • Industry based projects
  • Networking events
  • Site visits

Maritime Engineering  students are required to complete a set number of hours within an industry placement before they are eligible to graduate. These opportunities are typically sourced independently by the student with support from our Industry Coordinator. The engineering professional practice and assessment logbook are a requirement of our accreditation body, Engineers Australia, and support students to transition into the workforce with the the experience and practical skills required by employers.

Graduate & Internship Programs/Positions

Supporting our students into the work force is key to our ongoing relationship from student to alumnus. We offer a Career Hub portal for industry to post relevant job vacancies & graduate programs to target our current AMC students nd first year graduates.

To promote current graduate or internship positions we ask that you prepare a single PDF document outlining all key details for the opportunity and a contact person for students to contact directly. We can then email and post this information through our internal student-facing systems. Please email our coordinator at

If your position is needing broader exposure, or you are wanting to promote to AMC alumni, you can post your opportunities directly via Career Hub 

Alternatively, as a alumnus you can post directly to the AMC Alumni LinkedIn Group, or reach out to a relevant industry association or body affiliated with AMC.

Cadetships/Sponsorships for Seafaring

Cadetships/Sponsorships are a way in which companies, organisations, groups can support students throughout their tertiary level pathway to obtain practical skills and sea service which is a AMSA requirement for both Deck and Engine Ocean Seafaring certificates of competency.  If there are openings on vessels or you would like to talk to us about offering a cadetship, please email our seafaring team directly
