The University of Tasmania under its department of Maritime Engineering is currently offering the International Women in Maritime Engineering Scholarship in Australia for the 2022/23 academic year.
There has never been a better time for women to take up exciting careers in one of engineering’s most challenging and rewarding fields – Maritime Engineering. To increase female participation in maritime engineering programmes, the National Centre for Maritime Engineering and Hydrodynamics (NCMEH), Australia’s premier maritime engineering facility at the University of Tasmania’s specialist institute, the Australian Maritime College (AMC), chose to offer great scholarships to future engineering women.
