Shipping Industry Growth
Recent Studies world over, predict a steady growth of International Trade.
What this means is, "Shipping" as a mode of international and
intercontinental transport system can never go out of fashion - it being
the easiest & still the cheapest mode!
in Engineering techniques & technology has had an effect on growth
in terms of increase in the number of ships plying the seven seas as compared
to the increase in cargo volume movement. However, with advancement in
Technology, the demand for Qualified Marine Engineers has increased exponentially.
Consequently, students passing out of all the institutes have continued
to remain as one of the most sought after with the Ship Owners, globally.
Internationally reputed shipping companies hold campus interviews for
the Final semester pass-out cadets for direct recruitment. This assures
good prospect for the students intending to make a career at sea.

BEYOND THE MARINE
Apart from remaining within the Shipping or Related Industry (National
& International Shipping Companies, Marine Workshops, Surveying Concerns,
Navy, Diesel Engine Manufacturers etc) on shore based jobs, the marine
Engineers today are occupying important & key positions in varied
& diversified industries - from IT Sector, to Consultancy Organizations

- Power, Steel, Electronics/White Goods, to Service Sector organizations
like Hotel Industry etc. A few have also joined the Indian Government
A vast many with entrepreneurship
skills, are very successfully running their own business establishments
too. Needless to say, the Savings Potential while at the Merchant Navy,
has assisted in setting up their own business establishments.
