Add caption
Dear All,
 I would like to share the details of Marine Courses. This collection made for one of my Neighbor   friend  Mr.Raj Kumar. All this details I dedicated to him & whomever want to know about marine Courses .

Marine Engineering assures excellent growth opportunities and exciting job profiles for those interested in working on the ships or at the coasts. Marine Engineering courses comprise with construction and maintenance of ships, other sailing vessels, ports and cargo facilities at waterfront. Marine engineers take complete charge of engine room of a ship and functioning of various devices like electric motors, steam engines, propulsive engines, etc. They also develop newer designs or models for the engines of sailing vessels and check the efficiency of existing equipments like gas or stem turbines, diesel or nuclear propulsion plants. Executing new technologies like superconductivity, fuel cells and hydrodynamics are being explored in this field to make the vessels more efficient, thus supplying this field with even more interesting job propositions.

Some of the skills taught in marine engineering are  maintenance, repair and reassembly of shipboard engines and equipment, electrical engineering, electronic engineering, control engineering, crew management, pollution prevention, fire fighting, use of lifeboat, medical care, survival techniques, etc.

A career in Marine engineering opens up many opportunities for people who want to stay on land or wish to sail on the sea. A variety of new technologies are coming up and new experiments being conducted in this field, opportunities for adventurous and inquisitive youngsters have increased manifolds.
By  the completion of Marine Engineering courses in India, students can opt for lucrative career options both on and off shore. After completing the degree as a marine engineer, one can get a job in a ship as a third assistant engineer or fourth engineer with a starting salary of Rs. 40,000-Rs.60,000 .

Admission to Marine Engineering courses in India are done through several entrance examinations conducted between the months of April and June.
