Mechanical and Automobile Engineers:
Mechanical Engineers and Automobile Engineers can become part of Merchant Navy as Ship Engineers/ Off Shore Engineers by completing one year presea training intended for the same viz., Graduate Marine Engineer (GME) Course.
Mechanical/ Automobile and Marine Engineering Courses have several subjects in common and this makes it easier for them to get an additional degree in marine and open new doors of opportunities.
Moreover, with the present shortage of maritime professionals in the shipping industry and lack of quality mechanical/ automobile engineering jobs in the market, taking up marine engineering is an ideal choice for those already having a degree in mechanical engineering.
The best part of pursuing a marine engineering degree viz., Graduate Marine Engineer (GME) Course after mechanical engineering is that you don’t have to go through the four years of rigorous engineering training, which a marine engineer has to go through. All you need is a one year specialized course. For more details, refer article: GME Difference @ SNMA
A one year Graduate Marine Engineering (GME) course after mechanical engineering / automobile engineering would give students the licence to enter merchant navy. This one year GME course is all you need to become a marine engineer after doing mechanical engineering or automobile engineering.
Electrical, Electronics & Communication, Electronics & Instrumentation Engineers:
Engineers with Graduation (or) Diploma Qualifications in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering and Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering can join Merchant Navy as Ship / OffShore Electrical Officers by completing four month pre sea training intended for the same viz., Electro Technology Officer (ETO) Course. To become employable, it is necessary to complete Onboard training in sailing and clear relevant Certificate of Competency (CoC) Exams of the Flag State.
This remains an excellent option for engineering qualification holders from eligible streams as pay scales intended for employment within the Country can never match international pay scales. It is noteworthy that Diploma holders are also equally allowed to pursue this course unlike GME Course. Don’t miss this opportunity to upgrade your career as an licensed Electrical Officer (ETO).
