Pre-Sea Engineering

The career in the Maritime Science (Engineering) Department leads to the rank of ‘Chief Engineer’ of the vessel. The engine department is responsible for the technical department of the merchant vessel. A modern day ship is equipped with propulsion plants, power generating plants, cargo gears and many other service equipments along with their associated control systems. The engineers are responsible for safe operation of all machineries and their periodic maintenances.

Starting as an engine cadet, who is basically a trainee officer, the career path leads to fifth engineer, fourth engineer, third engineer, second engineer and finally to chief engineer. Last two ranks are considered to be management level jobs where as earlier ranks are operational level ranks.

The final rank of chief engineer is very challenging and considered by many as the most important rank on board a modern-day ship.
