Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering
Marine engineers and naval architects design and supervise the construction of everything from aircraft carriers to submarines and from sailboats to tankers. They are involved in the design, construction, and maintenance of ships, boats, and related equipment. Also they apply knowledge from a range of fields to the entire design and production process of all water vehicles. Marine engineers and naval architects are responsible for selecting ships' machinery, which may include diesel engines, steam turbines, gas turbines, or nuclear reactors, and for the design of mechanical, electrical, fluid, and control systems throughout the vessel.
The core courses are as follows:
Introduction To Profession
Computational Engineering/ Thermodynamics
Engineering Mechanics /Basic Electrical Engineering
Ecology and Environment
Basic Elec. Engineering
Analysis of Structures
Ship Resistance and Propulsion
Foundation of Fluid Mechanics
Ocean Wave Hydrodynamics
Design of Ocean Structures
Dynamics of Floating Systems and Manoeuvring of Marine Vehicles
Students can go for BE/ B Tech programs and for higher studies can choose ME/ M Tech programs.
After successful completion of the course Marine engineering and naval architects engineers mostly work in environmental protection, offshore oil recovery, marine metals and corrosion, renewable energy, remote sensing, naval architecture, defense, design and construction, underwater vehicles, global climate monitoring and marine transportation.
Employment opportunities are available in Merchant Navy, Navy and manufacturing industries. Offshore job opportunities are available in ports such as Mazagaon Docks Limited, government jobs in the Shipping Corporation of India and in shipping companies such as Anglo Eastern Shipping, Mobil Shipping Co, Orinoco Marine Consultancy and Chevron Manning Services.
