The marine engineering deals with the application of engineering sciences such as mechanical and electrical engineering to the field of development, design, operation and maintenance of watercraft propulsion and on-board systems. The course focuses on the overall development of the considering the various aspects of the marine engineering. A marine engineer is one who is known for his versatility in his work and hence is responsible for the function, maintenance and repair of all key mechanical equipment on board a ship. Ships use the most modern technology and equipment that can be worked upon to its maximum potential, maintained and handled mainly by marine engineers. A high degree of discipline and responsibility on the part of a marine engineer is required since the chief marine engineer is in charge of a ship and its cargo which cost millions of dollars. Engineers manage the colossal power of the ship with all of its complicated machinery
The career aspects of marine engineering has its own versatility. The marine engineers can remain within the realm of the shipping industry and join marine workshops at the ports. Instead, the marine engineers can join ship manufacturing companies, which are equally good paymasters. These days the marine engineers are employed in the IT sector in a major way, in construction companies, power sector, steel industry, and electronic industry. Government Service seekers can consider Directorate General Shipping of India. The demand for marine engineers in public and private shipping companies has risen sharply, with the increase in international global sea traffic.
Those with managerial and entrepreneurial skills can also explore the entrepreneurial scope in the field. Those marine engineers who have a passion for academics can pursue post graduation and enter the field of academics where there is immense demand for qualified academicians in this field. The starting salary of a fresh marine engineering graduate are usually higher than other engineering branches. There are various levels from first engineer to fourth engineer culminating in Chief Engineer. Marine jobs are highly paid and enjoyable. They also get the opportunity to see the world through sailing as a profession without any extra expense. Overall the marine engineers can e called the true explorers in engineering field.
The goal of marine engineering is to produce graduates with a strong background in engineering fundamentals who perform engineering work in the marine sector and marine related shore base industries involving the design, production, operation, maintenance, and management of engineering systems and projects.
Our goal is to provide an interdisciplinary education in marine propulsion, marine structure, seamanship, safety navigation, Refrigeration and air conditioning, electrical power generation and distribution.
