Uni Tas sets course for Sydney

The Australian Maritime College will offer two masters at the National Maritime Museum at Darling Harbour-side Sydney

From next year the University of Tasmania’s AMC will offer a masters in maritime engineering and an MBA in maritime and logistics management at the NMA. Sydney based students will do project and laboratory work at the AMC’s Launceston base. This, museum CEO Kevin Sumption says, “will provide unique opportunities for the museum to use our historic fleet, collection and stories to connect with the future leaders of our maritime industry.”

But why the museum? “Darling Harbour is an iconic location for the national maritime sector and Sydney is the centre of operations for the Royal Australian Navy, offering AMC prominent exposure to recreational, commercial and naval activities in the area,” U Tas states.
