Design ships that travel across oceans supporting global trade, or work on renewable solutions of the future.

The Australian Maritime College (AMC), a specialist institute of the University of Tasmania, has developed “Why Study Maths?” as an interactive, practical program that demonstrates how maths can be applied to the field of maritime engineering.

There are thousands of jobs around the globe which require knowledge in mathematics. Through mathematics, we learn how to problem solve and this is of great importance in many industries, including engineering. Engineers are curious about the way things work, they like to analyse and solve problems, they are goal-oriented and are good at mathematics and science.

The “Why Study Maths?” program has been developed to show students how mathematics can be applied to maritime engineering and provide a snapshot of what this career pathway might look like.
