Marine masters


I have a keen interest in marine engineering. Please mention some reputed government institutes with their complete addresses and their websites, other than IIT, in the field of marine engineering. Do these institutes grant admission on the basis of marks obtained in class XII?

MERI – Kolkata offers a four-year full-time course in marine engineering. The basic eligibility is a pass in 10+2 with physics, chemistry and mathematics. Admission is on the basis of the candidate’s performance in IIT-JEE. Tolani College of Marine Engineering, Pune, also offers a four-year course. Indian Naval Dockyard, Bombay Port Trust Ltd, Patel Engineering, Mumbai, Chidambaram Ship Care, Chennai, and Garden Reach Ship Building, Kolkata, offer different courses on the subject. Graduates in mechanical, electrical, electronic engineering and naval architecture are also in demand in this field.

Marine Engineering after 10+2


I am in standard XII, studying commerce and maths. I have a keen interest in marine engineering. I would like to know whether I could join this branch straight after the 10+2 level? Please mention some reputed institutes in the fields of marine engineering.

You should have opted for the science stream after class X to study marine engineering. Marine engineering is about building and designing technically sound ships. Training for marine engineering is imparted at the Marine Engineering Research Institute (MERI), which has its head office in Kolkata and branch in Mumbai. MERI offers a four-year course in marine engineering for which the eligibility is a 10+2 with physics, chemistry and mathematics. Admission on the basis of performance in the all India Joint Institute of Technology (IIT-JEE). Mechanical engineering graduates can do a six-month course from MERI- Mumbai, provided their degree is recognised by the AICTE. If you are still keen to go to sea, use your commerce background and join the shipping industry where you can join job duties like port administration and cargo handling. Narottam Morarji Institute of Shipping, Nariman Point, Mumbai, runs post-graduate diploma courses in shipping management and in associateship. The two different courses tackle the various commercial and management aspects of shipping.
