Scope:

This course ensures a student for a very bright future in the Merchant Navy. The Scope of the course is to mould a proper, efficient and bright Marine Engineer for the future generation with masterly skills in advance technology.

After getting the required approval from AICTE, Anna University and Director General of Shipping the 4 year B.E. degree course in Marine Engineering was started in the academic year 2006-07.

The four year course Is approved by the DG Shipping, vide letter No.3-TR(10)/2005-4 years B.E-IV dated 16 Aug 2010 . The ‘Ship-in-Campus’ for training is approved by the DG Shipping vide letter No.3-TR(10)/2005-4 years B.E-Vol-IV dated 23 Aug 2010.

The college is equipped with excellent lab facilities. As the college is already functioning with other branches like Mechanical, CSC, ECE, EEE and Post Graduate course in Information Technology, we have excellent and experienced faculties.

The college has necessary workshop facilities in the above disciplines to cater to the marine students also. The students will be trained by well experienced faculty members who have vast experience in various shipping companies.

The Marine engineering department will have its own independent identity inside the campus.
