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.
