More about the course


A course in marine engineering prepares you for a career in design, development, operation and maintenance of propulsion systems of boats, ships, oil platforms and other offshore vessels. Marine engineering as a discipline includes engineering sciences such as electrical, mechanical, electronics and lately computer science. The complete course, covered in 8 semesters, covers aspects from all the above engineering disciplines. Since the first steam boat was developed in the year 1704, marine engineering has seen a lot of technological development. A modern ship is these days a mammoth machine, with numerous technical functions associated with its propulsion and other on-board systems. This course thus prepares you for the numerous engineering challenges that a marine engineer has to face while at sea.

Job opportunities


As mention earlier, a career in the shipping industry, whether in government service or with private shipping vessels is a highly lucrative one. The services of a marine engineer is always in demand. There are numerous options in this field. Other than the merchant navy and the shipping industry, marine engineers also get to work in oil platforms and offshore wind farms. They are also into offshore engineering, doing designing and development work. Jobs for a marine engineer is not limited to the domestic shipping industry alone. Foreign shipping giants provide for very lucrative offers. After the course, marine engineers begin as 5th engineer and with numerous promotions and experience, proceed to become Chief Engineers.
