Marine EngineeringMarine engineering is a branch of engineering dealing with boats, ships, oil rigs and any other marine vessel or structure. As marine means SEA, so this branch of engineering deals with the transportation means of water or sea. Today’s trade world 90 % of the trading of goods is being done by ships, so marine engineering offers a vast career opportunity. Marine engineering means you have to learn the applications of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronic engineering, and computer science, to the development, design, operation, and maintenance of propulsion and onboard systems and oceanographic technology. This is a four-year course divided in 8 semesters.

Admission Procedure

One can get a seat in marine engineering through different entrance exams for marine Engineering conducted by different institutions.

Some top entrance exams for marine engineering are-


Scope of Marine Engineering

Marine engineering is having a very vast scope; it will provide you a very good job with an attractive that you can earn a very big amount in a very short span of time.


The tuition fee for marine engineering ranges from .2 lakh per year to 5 lakh per year in India depends on the college. Most of the colleges are charging fee yearly.

Note- in the first year most of the colleges are charging one fixed amount for the dress and personal training equipment, so students are requested to check this amount before proceeding for admission.


Course Duration

The course will be completed in 4 years. (8 semesters )


Salary / Package-

Marine Engineers are getting a minimum package of 5 lakhs per year in average, and whereas the maximum starting package is concerned, depends upon the ability of the student, and also on the current condition of the organization he is going to join.


According to Tolani maritime institute

Note.- the syllabus in different universities can be different by only a little extent. All major subjects will be the same. Students can notice one more difference that the subjects they are studying in his college in a particular semester, could be taught in the different semester in different college.
