How to become a Marine Engineer after completing Mechanical Engineering? This is a question that many B.E./B.Tech. Mechanical Engineering students as well as Graduates ask. Ever since I started publishing posts about Maritime courses, such as- B.Sc. Nautical Science, B.E./B.Tech. Marine Engineering, GME course etc, questions related to pursuing Marine Engineering after Graduation have been pouring in. Especially the number of Mechanical Engineering students has been very high, among the folks asking questions. That’s why I decided to come up with a post targeted at Mechanical Engineering students and Graduates. This is a very concise article. Within few minutes, you’ll be able to go through it and clear your doubts in the process!
Is it possible to pursue Marine Engineering after completing Mechanical Engineering program?
Yes, it is very much possible! After completing UG level Mechanical Engineering programs such as- B.E./B.Tech. Mechanical Engineering or Diploma in Mechanical Engineering, Graduates may go for PG Marine Engineering courses. In the next section, you will be able to get details regarding those Marine Engineering programs-
Courses to do to become Marine Engineer after finishing Mechanical Engineering
1 M.E./M.Tech. Marine Engineering
B.E./B.Tech. Mechanical Engineering Graduates are eligible to pursue this course. Doing this 2 years long PG Marine Engineering course will let them build a career in the Merchant Navy, as a Marine Engineer!
To get more details about this course, use this link- M.E./M.Tech. Marine Engineering.
2 GME course
GME course stands for Graduate Marine Engineering. For B.E./B.Tech. Mechanical Engineering Graduates, this is the perfect bridging program to acquire Technical skills related to Marine Engineering. The duration of this course is 1 year, which is less than what was in the case of M.E./M.Tech. course.
3 Diploma in Marine Engineering
Folks who have completed Diploma in Mechanical Engineering may pursue this 2 years long Diploma in Marine Engineering program. So, Diploma holders who want to build a career in Merchant Navy may make use of this program!
Also known as PGDME course, this program is 1 year long. B.E./B.Tech. Mechanical Engineering Graduates may pursue this course.
I hope Mechanical Engineering Graduates and students have been able to clear their doubts, after going through this article. It is evident from the list that there are different courses available, which helps Mechanical Engineering- Degree as well as Diploma holders to switch to Marine Engineering field!
