  Which is the best Maritime Institute in India in terms of placements?
Posted by: maritimeqa - 05-27-2022, 03:25 PM - Forum: PRE SEA TRAINING - No Replies

The placements are dependent on the institute and institute you are doing the pre sea should be associated with a shipping company to ensure placements. The best way is to get the sponsorship from the company 1st then start the pre sea, so that your sea time is ensured.

The pre sea course is easily done but the sea time is the biggest challenge. Take all precautions while selecting your pre sea institute.

mostly it is 60% in 12 in PCM . some companies also check your 10th marks for sponsorship. But the official requirement as per IMU is only 12th.

  What should I do if I'm not sponsored by any company for DNS? Should I go for a BSc,
Posted by: maritimeqa - 05-22-2022, 10:10 PM - Forum: PRE SEA TRAINING - No Replies


This is a very valid question.

Please note, if you do not get sponsorship, the best option would be to go from BSC.

My Logic as below:

If you do not get sponsorship and if you do DNS, you will need 18 months seatime, for which you will have to pay agents if yuo are not well connected.
In case you do BSC, the seatime requirement reduces to 12 months and you have 3 years to get a sponsor.Worst case you do not get a sponsor, you atleast have a BSC degree in hand.

  Is deck side better or engine side?
Posted by: vraghavans - 05-06-2022, 10:36 PM - Forum: JOINING MERCHANT NAVY - No Replies

Is deck side better or engine side?

To actually speak ,both the streams are completely different and hence it would be very wrong to compare one from the  other.

For deck side the entry level is 10+2 where as for Engine side it is minimum of a Engineering degree. Hence Engineers are usually little senior by age when they 1st set foot on the ship.

Engineers however have a degree in hand when they join he 1st ship and deck cadets do not have that. They can however get the degree with 2nd mates (if they join the DNS course)

Having said the above ,both the streams are equally great and challenging.

In the long run ,when the time comes to shift ashore, we have to admit that there is a shade bit more opportunities for engineers than deck officers if they have done mechanical engineering before they join the ship.

The answer is very confusing as there is no clear one answer for this question. Only suggestion i can make here is that, please try to get a decent degree some time in your life to be valued more.
