[[Introduction]] The Graduate Certificate of Applied Science (Marine Environment) provides graduates with advanced specialist skills and professional development in one of four degree major specialisations. With specialisation options in FISHERIES MANAGEMENT, AQUACULTURE, MARINE CONSERVATION and AQUATIC ANIMAL HEALTH, graduates will demonstrate maximum value to employers in industry, government and non-government organisations. Graduates are well positioned to contribute in areas of marine resource and environmental management, science policy, and technical management across a range of marine and maritime industries. Four coursework units are completed according to the requirements for the chosen major specialisation. A non-weighted practicum (work experience) component is a requirement of the course.
[[Career Outcomes]] Successful completion of this degree will have prepared/further developed the graduate for a career in various marine/maritime sectors including conservation and environmental management, fisheries and aquaculture production and post-harvest, the tourism industry, shipping and off-shore industries, non-governmental organisations and all levels of government from local to global. Students graduating from this degree are well suited to industrial, governmental and non-governmental regulatory and policy positions.
[[Professional Recognition]] The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) has accredited this course as meeting the further learning requirements, in part for registration as a Chartered Scientist and Chartered Marine Scientist.
