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), is offering great scholarships to young women. Areas of study include Marine and Offshore Systems, Ocean Engineering and Naval Architecture.
