Club Marine, together with the Australian Maritime College (AMC) in Launceston, Tasmania, has awarded two scholarships available to students studying in their first year at the National Centre for Maritime Engineering and Hydrodynamics towards a Bachelor of Engineering – Naval Architecture, Ocean Engineering, or Marine and Offshore Engineering.
Club Marine Vic/Tas State Manager, Ross Lambrick congratulated both Jack Ball and Kalian Barnes on their successful applications for the one-year Club Marine scholarships.
Jack Ball said he’s a step closer to fulfilling his dream-job of engineer by enrolling for a Bachelor of Engineering (Marine and Offshore Engineering) at AMC.
“Receiving this scholarship has motivated me to achieve my full potential, and being accepted to undertake this degree has been one of my best decisions to date,” said Ball, adding: “I’m looking forward to learning in a professional environment – the educators at the AMC can provide endless information and insight, and their confidence and knowledge in their respective fields will enable me to understand the topics associated with Marine and Offshore Engineering. I am hugely grateful for the aid the scholarship has provided and for the opportunity to study at the AMC.”
Kalian Barnes’s passion from a young age has been the ocean, having grown up in Batemans Bay, NSW, with access to some of Australia’s most pristine waters.
“My appreciation of the ocean, coupled with my love of mathematics, has led me to the Australian Maritime College (AMC) to pursue a Naval Architecture degree,” said Barnes.
“Receiving the Club Marine Scholarship fits well with my plans to specialise in, and hopefully one day own, luxury yachts and pleasure cruisers. My focus will be the design and adaptation of hull designs for mid-range pleasurecraft. The testing facilities at AMC are world-class and allow all aspects of hull design to be closely monitored and manipulated.
“As the recipient of a Club Marine Scholarship I am given the opportunity to be introduced to the maritime industry through Club Marine. This is invaluable for my degree and future plans. I would sincerely like to thank Club Marine and the AMC for this opportunity.”
