The Merchant Navy is one of the most lucrative options for students who want a rewarding career with golden opportunities knocking their doors. Lots of good courses are available to students throughout the country with different colleges and universities. Merchant Navy is one such course which not only is an exciting opportunity to live life at large but it also helps in developing an understanding about various workings of the ship. This is also called marine engineering for which a pre-sea training is mandatory. It is necessary for a student to belong to science stream in the first place.

They should have sound knowledge of physics, chemistry and mathematics which needs to be their main subjects in the senior secondary class. Other than that candidates from other fields of study like commerce or arts are not eligible. Those who apply for this course should finish their basic graduation in the first place. They can also apply for civil service exams with science as their background; even this is quite beneficial for their future. Those who have mechanical or electrical engineering as their subject in graduation can also apply for the jobs related to deck cadet.

There are various institutes which provide marine engineering to students; it depends on the students as to which institute they choose to study from after seeing their financial strength and understanding about the course. There are various colleges spread all over India who provide this course. India Maritime Institute (IMI, Delhi), Samundra Institute of Maritime Studies (Mumbai), Tolani Maritime Institute (TMI, Pune), Vels Academy of Maritime Studies (Chennai), Maharashtra Academy of Naval Education Training (MANET, Pune) and Institute of Technology & Marine Engineering are some of the colleges where this subject is available.

There are more colleges which provide this subject but the ones shown are considered the best among them. Lots of job opportunities are easily available for students in this line can grow up in their careers respectively and become captains too. They also have an option of working for Indian ships as well as international ships. Salary scales differ from firm to firm and can increase with relevant experience which they gain with time. Fresh marine engineers can earn anything between 18k-45k pm. The increase in pay package depends on their hard work and understanding.

Another important factor in this field is health. It's mandatory that every candidate is absolutely fit health wise, physically and mentally. They should not be suffering from any kind of ocular problem which is quite a crucial point during such exams. Life on ships demand immense physical fitness and those who cannot cope up with their health issues need to reconsider their decision about pursuing marine engineering. A major disadvantage is that there is no social life for them as they are at all times surrounded by the vast sea. Many students do have the problem of getting homesick. Such students cannot take up this profession. Though this profession is quite rewarding but it also has its disadvantages as well. We wish all our future marine engineers a very best of luck for their future endeavors.
