Marine Engineering Courses – Travel Your Way To A Rewarding Career

Merchant navy is a highly lucrative and dynamic career opportunity as 90 percent of the world’s goods are transported through ships. Apart from handsome remunerations, people employed in the shipping industry enjoy travelling across the globe and interacting with people of different cultures, ethnicity and race. Among various courses offered by marine educational institutes in India, Marine Engineering is an interesting and specialized branch of engineering with highly rewarding prospects. Why Marine Engineering? According to estimates, the number of active Indian seafarers, employed aboard Indian or foreign flagged ships, has grown by about 45 percent in the last few years. The government is planning to hire around 3.5 lakh seafarers in the next three to five years, a move aimed at promoting shipping industry jobs as an attractive career option. These figures are mind boggling. However, the important question is that can we match this demand? Going by the figures of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, there are 6,214 engineering and technology institutes in the country. About 2.9 million students are enrolled in these institutes. On an average, every year around 1.5 million students get a degree in engineering. However, fewer than 20 percent get employed in their core field. This is because of a lack of employable skills which are needed to carry out technical jobs. Thus, more courses are needed which lead to direct employability of the graduating students. This is where the B Tech Marine Engineering and Graduate Marine Engineering courses come into the picture. In B Tech Marine Engineering the total available seats in the country are only about 3,500 per year. However, due to lack of awareness about this course, the number of applications to this course is rather negligible. On the other hand, the employability of the graduating students of B Tech Marine Engineering is very high as compared...
