How to become a Marine Engineer after doing Mechanical Engineering?

If you are a mechanical engineer and wish to get a job in the merchant navy, then you can do so by becoming a marine engineer using your mechanical engineering degree.

Mechanical and marine engineering courses have several subjects in common and this makes it easier for a mechanical engineer to get an additional degree in marine and open new doors of opportunities.

cadets training


Moreover, with the present shortage of maritime professionals in the shipping industry and lack of quality mechanical engineering jobs in the market, taking up marine engineering is an ideal choice for those already having a degree in mechanical engineering.

How to Become a Marine Engineer?

The best part of pursuing a marine engineering degree after mechanical engineering is that you don’t have to go through the four years of rigorous engineering training, which a marine engineer has to go through. All you need is a one year specialized course.

A one year Graduate Marine Engineering (GME) course after mechanical engineering would give students the licence to enter merchant navy. This one year GME course is all you need to become a marine engineer after doing mechanical engineering.

Eligibility Criteria

However, there are certain requirements which one should satisfy in order to join the one year marine engineering course. They are as follows:

  • Graduation in BE (Mechanical) Engineering / Naval Architecture with minimum marks of 50% in final year
  • Must have minimum 50% marks in English language at 10th or 12th or in Degree Exam.
  • Must not be more than 28 years old

Institutes Offering Graduate Marine Engineering Course

If you are a mechanical engineer in India, there are several institutes that are recognized by the Directorate General of Shipping, India and which provide 1 –year Graduate Marine Engineering Course (GME).

Kindly note that each institute has different admission procedure, and thus it is advisable to contact the institute directly in order to get the right information about the course.

Some of the prominent institutes offering GME course are:

  6. rishi says

    I’m interested in GME. But how about the placements????
    Is there is any colleges that can offer 100% placement???

  7. Anish says

    Dear Rishi,

    The current market condition is very bad. The current pass out cadets and engineers are waiting for almost a year to get on a ship. Most of them are paying lakhs to agent to get a job. Try to get in a college run by a ship management company like anglo eastern etc.
    Best of Luck.

  8. Chinna Thambi says

    waiting for your guidance

    thanking you in advance

  14. Anish says

    @Tauqeer: The procedure is correctly explained in the article above. The current job market is in very bad shape as fresh passed marine engineers are waiting for 1-2 year to get onboard ship for training.

  15. tauqeer raza says

    may i know what will be the fresh mechanical engg salary after completing his pre sea training

    what is the current job market

    what is the cost of doing GME COURSE


  16. Mukul Sreenivasan says

    I recently attended a. seminar on marine engineering by a reputed training institute. They said the eligibility criteria for getting a license includes not having a history of greater than 6 back papers in your mechanical engineering course.
    Is that correct? Of all the places i’ve searched online, never have i come across such a rule.

  17. vijay pradeep says

    Sir, Now i am doing my B.E.mechanical engineering final year , and i want to join marchant navy , so
    which institute i should join for GME course, sir please tell me about some institute and there process to join? n total amount of that course sir

  18. says

    The shipping industry is going through a Job crunch. It is better to join a Company owned institutes like- Anglo Easter Maritime Academy, Univan Maritime Academy etc. Please contact the institute for all the other details.

    is bsc in ship building and repairs is a gud profession ? sir can you explain me what is it all about. My friends told me that the career has no scope with respect to marine engineering. i have qualified imu cet with a gud rank but i scored only 59.9 % in 12th. i wanted to join marine engineering coz i know lotz about it. bt i have no idea about bsc in ship building and repair. sir please guide me. tell me which one is a better career option.

  48. ojas says

    i am doing mechaincal engineering. i am in the 1st yr. can i join marine engineering in the 2nd year. is there any way.

  49. says

    “tell me which one is a better career option.” – It entirely depends on your preferences and state of mind.

    Marine Egnineering will have better remuneration compared to ship building.
    Shipbuilding career has its own advantage and you can earn good remuneration at later stage, and of course it has one added advantage- It’s a shore job.

  50. says

    No- You cannot. Either join it from the 1st year of 4 years Marine engineering course on basis of your 10+2 PCM marks or you can continue your mechanical degree and follow the procedure explained in the above article.

    Respected sir
    ,I am Deepika ,right now iam in 2nd year of manufacturing engineering course.Can i become a marine engineer? Do girls are fit for this job ?

  72. says

    You need to have subjects equivalent to mechanical engineering for getting in this stream. Of-course, girls are fit for this job (you need to pass physical and medical examination).

  73. Rajat says

    If an individual persue his/her Marine Engineering in a foreign country( Abroad ) for example in U.S as an international student.
    Does he/she ‘ll be allowed to do work there ? or he/she ‘ll selected in Campus Placements ?.
    As mentioned in official sites of Public Colleges of U.S ( SUNY, USMMA, Texas Maritime ) that international students are not eligible of getting U.S Coast Guard License but they are eligible for doing their UG/PG Courses in colleges mentioned above.

    My age is 27 and I am really passionate about career at sea . I would like to know that is there any disadvantage in joining shipping so late,as my age is there anything like shipping companies prefer candidates with much lesser age. I went for an interview of great eastern , they put me into waiting list as my Interview was not good In final calculation of marks one of them asked me that will I be able to study at the age of 27.
    Plz reply I am a bit demotivated.

  136. says

    Age is no bar to follow your passion. You might find candidates younger than you at senior position but if you love what you do, that wont be a problem. As far as I know, their no such “Age” preference. Its all about the performance.
