Marine Engi­neer­ing Edu­ca­tion in Adelaide


Founded in 1874, the Uni­ver­sity of Ade­laide is a pub­lic uni­ver­sity located in Ade­laide, South Aus­tralia and con­sis­tently ranked in the top 1% of uni­ver­si­ties in the world with high-​quality edu­ca­tion that’s rec­og­nized inter­na­tion­ally. The uni­ver­sity has pro­duced numer­ous Nobel Prize win­ners and more than 100 Rhodes Schol­ars. Ade­laide Uni­ver­sity is a mem­ber of the Group of Eight, made up of Australia’s top research-​intensive universities.

University’s main cam­pus is located on the North Ter­race in the Ade­laide city cen­ter. The main cam­pus is the site of most teach­ing and research facil­i­ties. Set in the cul­tural heart of the city, the Uni­ver­sity offers excel­lence in its edu­ca­tional and social facil­i­ties. Other cam­puses are: Rose­wor­thy Cam­pus (dry­land agri­cul­ture, nat­ural resource man­age­ment and ani­mal pro­duc­tion); the Waite Cam­pus (Waite Agri­cul­tural Research Insti­tute); The­bar­ton Cam­pus (Ade­laide Uni­ver­sity Research Park) and an edu­ca­tion cen­ter in Singapore.

The Fac­ulty of Engi­neer­ing, Com­puter and Math­e­mat­i­cal Sci­ences pro­vides high qual­ity teach­ing and research in strate­gi­cally cho­sen areas of Engi­neer­ing, Com­puter Sci­ence and Math­e­mat­ics. Grad­u­ates from this Fac­ulty are highly regarded by employ­ers and have been suc­cess­ful in a vari­ety of areas. The Fac­ulty has close links with indus­try, and its research is well sup­ported by grants and con­tracts from both gov­ern­ment and the pri­vate sec­tor. Many of its tech­no­log­i­cal break­throughs form the basis of inde­pen­dent com­pa­nies with Uni­ver­sity share­hold­ing or joint ven­ture agree­ments with indus­try both in Aus­tralia and overseas.
