Training Methodology - B. Tech. Marine Engineering
To turn students into successful marine engineers of the future, TMI has adopted a unique approach that builds a strong knowledge base. Students are given the skills with which to apply this knowledge in a shipboard environment and are also inculcated with sense of discipline, team spirit and the right attitude for achieving success.
Building a strong knowledge base
The Marine Engineering Programme has courses that cover a wide gamut of areas in mechanical, electrical and marine engineering, as well as the general sciences. TMI faculty members have decades of experience both in academics as well as industry, and have an in- depth understanding of machines encountered in typical ships.
Skills to succeed in shipboard environment
To intimately acquaint students with the rigours of the marine environment, the Institute is equipped with simulators that can be used to deliver a realistic rendering of the ship board environment. Practicals on campus are complemented by a one-semester industry Internship Programme whereby students carry out regular work onboard a ship or in a shore-based industrial unit for 22 weeks in the final year of study.
Inculcating the right attitude
Today discipline, team spirit, a well-rounded personality and professional pride are prerequisites for a successful merchant navy officer. To groom its students for excellence in this context, the Institute maintains the requisite disciplinary regime, requires participation in both team and individual sports, fosters cultural interests and pursues a curriculum committed to a holistic education. Needless to say students are continually evaluated along all these dimensions.
