A Marine Engineer is in-charge of operation and maintenance of all machinery on board merchant ships. Today’s ships are technologically highly advanced and the engineer needs to understand various disciplines including mechanical, electrical, electronics, hydraulic, structural and naval architectural concepts. The Shipping has come a long way and is developing continuously to meet the challenges of harmonizing security and environmental aspects with safe and efficient operation at sea.
All the ports and shipping development in Gujarat are under the administrative control of Gujarat Maritime Board (GMB- Govt. of Gujarat). Ganpat University has established strong link with GMB through MoU. .GMB has promised to provide required help for the course in all respects. In fact it is their insistence to government of Gujarat that the programme be started at our college.
We have received confirmation letters from various shipping companies like Gujarat Maritime Board, Adani Shipping (India ) Pvt. Ltd., SKS Logistics , Albatross Marine Services, Ocean Sparkle Limited, Orion Agencies Limited etc. for placements on board ships for the passed out students of Marine Engineering. In future these linkages will be enhanced and increased.
Message from the Head of Department
With the advent of STCW 2010, Marine Engineering Training has many challenges. The shipping industry depends on competent, well-trained seafarers to ensure the safety of life at sea, maritime security efficiency of navigation and protection & preservation of the marine environment. the revised STCW Convention aims to provide the international standards necessary for trainers to develop the much-needed skills and competencies for today’s seafarer.
The recently installed Full Mission Engine Room Simulator and Working Marine Diesel Engine in the ever enhancing marine Workshop and Laboratories is the indication of our adherence to latest, practical and innovative teaching methodology.
It shall be the constant endeavour of the Department of Marine Engineering of U.V. Patel College of Engineering, to provide value-added professional state-of-the-art learning opportunities in the field of Marine Engineering, with sound foundation of learning and enculturation of human values, leading to seaworthy and disciplined cadets serving for safer ships, cleaner oceans and secure ports.
