ametunivDepartment of Marine Engineering

The Department of Marine Engineering, was established in the year 2001 with the aim to educate and impart skills required to operate and manage machineries in modern ships of merchant marine fleet. A career in the Merchant marine as an Engineer Officer can be a rewarding one, both financially and in terms of job satisfaction. For the able young officer, the system provides a smooth and rapid path of career development. The process is likely to take almost eight years from the commencement of cadetship till qualifying with Class 2 Certificate. Further, 3 years may be required to go up in the hierarchy to become Chief Engineer (Class I Certificate). A modern day ship is equipped with propulsion plants, power generating plants, cargo gears and many other service equipments along with their associated control systems. The engineers are responsible for safe operation of all machineries and their periodic maintenances. After having obtained their Class I Certificate and experience as a senior officer on board, they seek employment ashore. Shore based employers generally have high regard for the seafaring engineer and consequently the transfer from shipboard to land based employment is usually easily achieved.
