All About Marine Engineering

Marine Engineering is a broad topic which includes the things in the water or on a ship. Transport of goods by sea is the cheapest means of transport. Marine Engineering will effect the international trade to a great extent.'

'Marine Engineers are very much responsible for the technical management of ship. Marine Engineer should have broad knowledge to control and calculate about the ship and sea.'

'The sea is a very demanding environment more than earth. The global commerce of the modern world is largely entitled by the technologies developed by marine engineers.

Marine Engineering refers to the engineering of ships, boats and other marine structures. Marine engineers involved in the construction, operation and maintenance of marine vehicles. Sea is unpredictable environment where nature plays a major role. Such structures of the sea should withstand the wind, waves and salt exposures.

The development of air planes have taken over the place of ship. At present, Ships are majorly used for luxurious sight seeing cruise ships. Innovations should be built in the ship in order to attract the passengers.

Ships are mainly used for transport of goods such as oil, timber, cement etc., which in turn plays a role in the international trade but also the domestic trade. Marine Engineers should have the knowledge to built a ships like oil tankers, timber carrier and cement carrier etc. Marine Engineering should involve in the assurance of safety for both the passengers and goods.
