If you were always fascinated by ships and boats, Marine Engineering is your calling. This engineering stream is concerned with designing, planning, building and maintenance of boats and ships. The key skills required for this course are IT skills, designing ability and technical prowess. A candidate, who specializes in this field, needs to be flexible to work on a variety of areas - from ship-building factories to off-shore rigs and on the ships itself. They may find employment in a country's Navy too. For that, you may be required to travel and be at sea for months at a time and away from your loved one. On the flip side, the salaries would be much higher. Marine engineers work in teams or in coordination with many other engineers.
> Minimum 45 percent aggregate marks in 10+2 with Physics and Mathematics (compulsory) and any one of the following subjects: Chemistry/Biology/Biotechnology/Computer Science/Electronics.
> You can either get a seat for BE/BTECH through competitive examination like JEE and ComedK or through the direct admission route.
The avg. tuition fees per year may range between Rs. 1 lakh to Rs. 3 lakh.
Hostel charges can range between Rs. 45,000 to Rs. 80,000
Budget estimate for 4 years: Rs. 8 lakh to Rs. 15 lakh (for Comedk / Management quota)

Students need to obtain more than 60 per cent marks in their BE final examination and a high GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test for Engineering) to get into MTech courses in India. In India, MTech courses are offered in fewer colleges and those from IITs are considered more prestigious.
A student can also opt for a MTech degree from a foreign university such as Stanford. List of top Marine Engineering Colleges in the world. They can follow it up with a PhD and start into a research or teaching position.
An engineer can also choose to do a MBA course to start on a management position.
