With a long and proud maritime heritage, the INDIA remains a major force in the international shipping industry, and commercial shipping is a significant contributor to the economy of this country. Seafaring offers a stimulating, fulfilling and well-paid career for people who enjoy the associated challenges and responsibility, and who want more from a career than the usual ‘nine to five’ routine. A career at sea brings with it a wealth of opportunity, providing individuals with the training and experience for a lifetime of rewarding challenges, which in the longer term can be continued either at sea or ashore. While many will aspire to reach the ranks of captain, chief engineer, chief electro-technical officer or hotel operations manager on board ship, others may decide later on to move ashore and pursue one of the many opportunities available to experienced mariners in the international maritime industry or elsewhere.
The placement for cadets passing out the Institute is fully assured. Cadets passed out from the institute are employed with various Indian / Foreign Shipping companies. We maintain the highest standards in the industry and comply with ship owners’ and charterers’ requirements by following a comprehensive maintenance program. This includes both planned maintenance systems and regular inspections that are proven to help in asset preservation, cost efficiency and are focused on maximization of revenue days.
A Marine Engineer, unlike other Engineers, has to work with his own hands as well as manage other Engineers and Crew under him. Onboard a Merchant Vessel, the Engineers have set working hours with a minimum of 8 (Eight) hours of rest between two spells of Duty. However, working hours often stretch to 10-12 hours per day at a stretch especially for Junior Engineers, due to exigencies of work.
It is for this reason that the Profession demands that all fresh entrants should be both physically and mentally strong to face the rigors of sea life. In addition to tough working conditions, the Marine Engineer has to give his best by way of leadership and comradeship in the adverse condition at sea i.e. during bad weather when, often, a person may not be able to eat / sleep etc. properly for days at a stretch. It is in these conditions that all Engineer Officers on board have to be able to direct and assist their subordinates and ensure that all engineers carry out their duties in the best possible way. In our endeavor to produce not just good Marine Engineers, but also good seafarers, the Institute selects candidates, who are physically tough, mentally strong and alert and have aptitude for sea life.
A day of a Ship Deck Officer :-While the safety of the vessel and everyone onboard is your prime responsibility, all deck operations and maintenance are also managed by the team. Deck officers are a vital part of the onboard management team, taking charge of an expensive vessel and its equally valuable crew and guests. You will take key decisions on maneuvering of the vessel and controlling its navigation, communications and security. Deck (navigation) officers maintain watches on the bridge at sea and about the ship in port. They are responsible for passage planning, the safe navigation of the vessel, cargo loading and discharge, ship stability, communications and the maintenance of the hull and deck equipment.
Skills and attributes
Members of the deck department are well-trained and experienced mariners, having gained and developed their professional expertise and skills in one or more of the maritime sectors. You will need to be decisive, unflappable and able to inspire confidence in others as well as being a good team member and have effective communication skills. Confidence, enthusiasm and self-reliance are also essential attributes.
