M.Tech. (Marine Engineering)

Master of Technology in Marine Engineering

Duration: 2 Years
Level: Post Graduation
Type: Degree
Eligibility: Graduation

M.Tech. Marine Engineering or Master of Technology in Marine Engineering is a postgraduate Marine Engineering course. Course will train project design and shipyard engineers in naval and offshore platform design, production and maintenance. Acting as naval architects or shipyard project engineers, they will exercise their skills in fields of activity related to the ship building industry (naval and offshore architecture, design, production and maintenance), either in major corporations, marine engineering firms or companies working offshore, in the defence, oil, merchant ship building or boat building sectors. Course offer students the opportunity to further develop and enhance their skills and expertise in this field. The variety of specialized coursework electives and study options enable students to meet their individual needs as well as meeting industry-defined objectives.
