Marine engineering is a division of engineering that deals with the nautical architecture and science.
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.
Marine engineering often refers to the engineering of boats, ships, oil rigs and any other marine vessel or structure, but also encompasses oceanographic engineering.
Marine Engineers are responsible for the design and connstruction of seagoing vessels and structures, focusing primarily on their internal systems. Simply put, they design the onboard electrical, environmental and propulsion systems aboard everything from oil platforms to cruise ships.
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 engineering is one of the top most career choices made by students in India. There are a lot of career opportunities in this field. Opportunities exist for marine engineers, ocean engineers and naval architects in the private, educational, corporate, and governmental sectors. Marine engineering is the most basic profession as far as ships and navigation is concerned. The construction, operations and maintenance of the engine room are the main responsibilities of a marine engineer.
There are lots of job opportunities available in India as well as in abroad countries. Some of the job fields in marine engineering such as environmental protection, offshore oil recovery, marine metals and corrosion, renewable energy, remote sensing, naval architecture, defense, underwater vehicles, global climate monitoring and marine transportation.
Some job titles: -
Marine Engineering Officers
Junior (Fifth) Engineer
Navy Weapon Engineering Officer
Marine engineering is one of the highly rewarding field. Engineer in trainee level can expect income around Rs. 30,000 – Rs. 40,000 every month. After gaining knowledge and experience one can earn more returns. A marine engineer working for the Indian merchant navy gets a lucrative pay. A merchant navy officer works generally in offshore and also gets the status of an NRI. He usually works in offshore for 6 months. Marine engineering graduates working in abroad can get lucrative income.
