Course Details


Marine engineering is the branch of study that deals with the design, development, production and maintenance of the equipment used at sea and on board sea vessels like boats, ships etc. This is a vast field of knowledge and it also has many sister arenas like naval architecture and nautical science. Marine engineering basically is meant for research conducted in oceans and coastal or inland waters connected to the sea. Marine engineers have the entire responsibility of the ship's technical management. The construction, operations and maintenance of the engine room are the main obligation of a marine engineer. Marine engineering also comprises of anthropology, engineering, archaeology, sociology and other related studies of human relationships with the sea.

Marine engineers are skilled individuals involved in the design, construction and maintenance of vehicles and structures used on or around water. Marine engineering technology and techniques are used to create cruise ships, oil platforms and harbors.
