Bachelor of Technology in Marine Engineering (MRE)

The B.Tech in Marine Engineering course is the study of the complex principles and practices involved in the running and maintenance of marine machinery which include main propulsion engines, auxiliary engines for electrical power generation, boilers, refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment, varieties of pumps and associated electrical and mechanical auxiliaries, required for the manual and automated operation of various types and sizes of inland, coastal and sea-going vessels, some of which are highly specialized and state-of-the-art. The course follows the syllabus in excess of that as prescribed by the Directorate General of Shipping covering the areas pertaining to ship construction, naval architecture, machine drawing and design of marine machineries. The essence of MRE is that it requires the application of fundamental concepts of Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics, Chemical, Metallurgical, Instrumentation & Automation engineering under arduous conditions prevailing at sea.

Bachelor of Nautical Science (BNS)

A sailor’s ability to navigate a ship on the oceans for making from port to port and along the coastlines of the world is based on his/ her knowledge of Nautical Science. It is the precise study of the principles and practices of operating various types and sizes of vessels, some of which are highly specialized and state- of-the art in Inland waters, Coastal areas and on the high seas, and includes topics such as navigation, ship stability and ship handling, cargo-work, propulsion, and meteorology, to name a few.

TNU is also one of the few colleges in Eastern India that can boast of an in-house, high-tech Ship-in-Campus with advanced bridge simulation facilities.This novel infrastructure facility, built in compliance with international standards house original ship equipment in order to give budding Marine Engineers and Nautical Science cadets a hands-on experience of what a naval career entails.Our ex-cadets have been placed on board ships owned and managed by various shipping companies like, Elegant Marine Services, Wallem Ship Management, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, MSC Ship Management, United Ocean Ship Management, Gulf Energy Maritime Services (GEM), Wilhelmsen Ship Management, MMS Maritime (MMSI), Apeejay Shipping, Univan Ship Management, Searland Management Service, Herald Maritime Service, etc.MoU signed withDestan Ship Management Pvt. Ltd. (DSMPL)is beneficial for students as it authorizes DSMPL to recruit and place students of Marine Engineering (MRE) and Bachelor of Nautical Science (BNS) on shipping companies.The University is privileged to host faculties, who have distinguished and proven track records as Chief Engineer and 2nd Engineer, Master and Chief Officer of extraordinary merit.
