    HELLO FRIEND,


    You want to know about the Topic of "How to apply for job in Merchant Navy after B.Tech in Mechanical engineering.....................



    Courses :

    Career in Merchant Navy can be pursued either as an officer or a rating in mainly two specialized fields, i.e. Marine Engineering and Nautical (deck). To become a seafarer, following streams of entries (Pre-Sea courses) are available to Indian citizens in the Government as well as in private training institutions (recognized and approved by Director General of Shipping, Ministry of Shipping):



    Rating (Entry standard Xth)

    4 month Pre-Sea Course for General Purpose (GP) rating.
    3 month Pre-Sea Course for Deck rating.
    3 month Pre-Sea Course for Engine rating.
    4 month Pre-Sea Course for Saloon rating.
    In addition, a candidate can join as utility hand or Petty Officers (Fitters) after completing 4 Basic Courses, i.e. FPFF, EFA, PSSR and PST.




    Govt training Institutes :
    There are four Government Training Institutes providing Pre-Sea and Post-Sea training of international standard :
    Training Ship Chanakya, Navi Mumbai.
    Marine Engineering & Research Institute (MERI), Kolkata.
    Marine Engineering & Research Institute (MERI), Mumbai.
    Lal Bahadur Shastri College of advanced Maritime Studies and Research, Mumbai.



    WHAT ARE THE VARIOUS JOBS?


    (a) Deck Officer:
    The officers from this branch primarily look after the ships navigation, loading/unloading of cargo and the general maintenance and administration of the ship. The officer joins in the rank of 3rd officer and is subsequently promoted to the rank of 2nd officer, Chief Officer and finally the Master of the ship. Off course, the promotions are subject to the individual passing his competency exams and his performance onboard the ship. In addition to navigation duties, normally a 3rd officer looks after the life saving appliances, 2nd officer the passage planning and the navigation equipment, the Chief Officer looks after the cargo work and the Master is the overall in-charge of the ship.

    (b) Engineering Officer:
    These are the officer who are qualified in Marine Engineering. They join as 4th Engineer and step by step, get promoted to 3rd, 2nd and Chief Engineer, subject to their passing the competency exams and performance onboard the ship. The Engineering department in addition to looking after the main engines, are also responsible for associated equipment like power generation equipment, cargo pumps and air - conditioning etc. The4the Engineer is responsible for operation and maintenance of engine room auxiliaries. The 3rd engineer for fuel, water and the boiler room equipment. The 2nd engineer for lubricating the system, engine room auxiliaries, and electric equipment. In addition, there is an electrical officer, who is responsible for the electrical equipment.

    (c) Radio Officers:
    The Radio Officers looks after all the electronic communication and the related records. In addition, he also looks after electronic navigation aids such as radar, depth measuring devices, long range navigation equipment and global positioning system etc. However, this category of personnel has been almost phased out and their duties passed over to other deck officers. To be qualified as Radio Officer an individual need to do a two week GMDSS course.

    (e) Purser:
    He is an officer who looks after all the administrative work related to pay and perks of personnel onboard. However, this category of personnel has also been almost phased out and their duties passed over to other deck officers.

    (f) Ratings:
    There are three kinds of ratings - deck, engine room and catering. Deck rating is responsible for cargo handling, mooring/ unmooring and general maintenance of the ship. Similarly the engine room ratings assist the engineering officers in maintenance and operation of engines and associated equipment. The catering crew consists of Steward / Cooks and as the name suggests, they look after the catering and the house keeping of officers cabin.

    Merchant navy is responsible for goods transport. A large percentage of trade is done via sea. This is why the role of Merchant Navy is so significant. However this is not the reason why so many young candidates are interested in joining it.

    Merchant Navy is your ticket to travel seven seas. Those who want to see different countries and love to travel find Merchant Navy as the perfect career option. I should also point out that the salary package for officer level jobs is also very good.

    You can easily expect the salary into the 5 digit figure. There are also several perks that are associated with officer level jobs. This include taking your wife along on the voyage.

    Since you are pursuing mechanical engineering, you are eligible for direct entry into the Merchant Navy. There are various jobs in Merchant Navy that are specifically related to mechanical engineering.

    Although it is believed that only candidates with B.Sc in nautical science or marine engineering can apply for job in Merchant Navy. This is not entirely true. Candidates who have pursued Mechanical engineering are also eligible for the job.


    Direct Entry

    Candidates who have completed B.Tech in Mechanical/Electrical/Technology can seek various jobs in the Merchant Navy. You can simply apply for the job and if get selected by the company, it would arrange a pre sea course in marine engineering for you.

    The course has the duration of 9 months and it can be pursued from MERI. It is mandatory for the candidates who have completed B.Tech in mechanical/electrical/technology to undergo through this course.
