Gujarat, blessed with a 1600 km long coastline, has always been the frontrunner in the all-inclusive development of the ports and maritime sector in India. Gujarat is today a torchbearer in Port-led Development and is ready to race toward the next phase of maritime growth. Today, under the visionary leadership and guidance of our Hon’ble Chief Minister, Gujarat is also laying strong emphasis on achieving laurels in the fields of education and skill development.
It is my great pleasure to note that U. V. Patel College of Engineering’s B.Tech (Marine Engineering) program is now ready to dedicate its pioneer batch to the maritime industry. The industry truly needs skilled professionals and I hope that these Marine Engineering Cadets contribute gainfully to this cause through their knowledge, training and experience.
I would like to highlight that Gujarat Maritime Board has constantly Supported Ganpat University’s initiative in establishing and driving this course; and I am pleased to note the progress achieved in the last four years. On behalf of Gujarat Maritime Board, I wish the University all the very best in its endeavors’ going forward.
