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.
