A Marine Engineer, unlike other Engineers, has to work with his own hands as well as manage other Engineers and Crew under him.

Onboard a Merchant Vessel, the Engineers have set working hours with a minimum of 8 (Eight) hours of rest between two spells of Duty. However, working hours often stretch to 10-12 hours per day at a stretch especially for Junior Engineers, due to exigencies of work.

It is for this reason that the Profession demands that all fresh entrants should be both physically and mentally strong to face the rigors of sea life.

In addition to tough working conditions, the Marine Engineer has to give his best by way of leadership and comradeship in the adverse condition at sea i.e. during bad weather when, often, a person may not be able to eat / sleep etc. properly for days at a stretch. It is in these conditions that all Engineer Officers on board have to be able to direct and assist their subordinates and ensure that all engineers carry out their duties in the best possible way.

In our endeavor to produce not just good Marine Engineers, but also good seafarers, the Institute selects candidates, who are physically tough, mentally strong and alert and have aptitude for sea life.
