About

The Marine Science and Management program from University of New South Wales is a joint degree between UNSW and three Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS) partner universities. 

Overview

It takes you beyond traditional courses to address new approaches to marine science, including information systems and remotely sensed data analysis, the impact and use of marine science on management in the marine and coastal zones.You will also learn about coastal management and engineering, climate change, marine ecology and conservation, physical oceanography and modelling. This is a 12- to 18-month degree depending on prior learning, and you will have the option to complete three courses at partner universities. 

The degree’s compulsory tutorial and seminar series is taught at SIMS at Chowder Bay and is based around the analysis of data streams from the Integrated Marine Observing System.
