AUSMEPA CONGRATULATES ‘NEIL BOSE’, AMC PRINCIPAL AND LOYAL SPONSOR – NAMED AMONG THE NATION’S TOP ENGINEERS

Monday, 17 August 2015

Australian Maritime College Principal Neil Bose has been named one of the top 100 most influential engineers in the country by peak industry body Engineers Australia.

Professor Bose has earned an international reputation for marine propulsion research over the course of his 37-year career and continues to play a leading role in innovative engineering projects at AMC, a specialist institute of the University of Tasmania.

“I am honoured to be named alongside such esteemed company as one of the top 100 most influential engineers in Australia. This recognition is wonderful for AMC and the University and has resulted largely because of this role – it is as much about the position as it is the person,” he said.

Professor Bose points to his role at AMC’s helm, in which he is responsible for developing close ties with industry and promoting the college’s maritime training programs and specialist research facilities, as a career highlight.   

“Research is important but we focus on research that is very applied – nearly all of our projects are led in conjunction with industry,” he said. 

“At the leading edge side, we are working on designing and operating the next generation of autonomous underwater vehicles as part of the Antarctic Gateway Partnership; and we are researching the design and sustainment of our future defense vessels as part of the ARC Training Centre for Transforming Australia's Naval Manufacturing Industry.”
