Bachelor of Technology in Marine Engineering

Duration Level Type

4 Years



B.Tech. Marine Engineering is an undergraduate Marine Engineering course. Marine engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with nautical architecture and science. The term ‘Marine Engineering’ is meant for research conducted in oceans and coastal or inland waters connected to the sea. Marine Engineering courses deal with the construction and maintenance of ships and other sailing vessels as well. The engineering discipline concerned with the machinery and systems of ships and other marine vehicles and structures. During the course, marine engineers deal with a wide range of systems, including diesel engines, gas turbines, boilers, steam turbines, heat exchangers, and pumps and compressors; electrical machinery; hydraulic machinery; refrigeration machinery; steam, water, fuel oil, lubricating oil, compressed gas, and electrical systems; equipment for automation and control; equipment for firefighting and other forms of damage control; and systems for cargo handling. The time of the course is four years. The course is very important and in today’s time, its value has increased many times due to coastal security reasons.

How is B.Tech. Marine Engineering Course Beneficial?

  • Candidates, who have completed their B.E. or B.Tech. course in marine engineering can take up a Master of technology course in Marine Engineering or they can also take up their M.Tech. course in any other branch of engineering of their interest.
  • Some of the previously mentioned institutions like International Maritime Academy themselves appoint candidates who have completed their B.Tech. Marine Engineering as junior engineering on merchant ships. Once a candidate successfully completes the required period as a junior engineer, he is permitted to take up a competency examination forgetting to post of Chief Engineer.
