# Master of Technology [M.Tech] (Marine Engineering)

Content Curator

## Course Structure

The course is designed to provide skills and knowledge in designing, developing and maintaining the shipping parts and shipping vessels so as to make students successful engineers with a shinning career.

The course delivery methods include lectures, Lab work, practical training, assignments, workshops etc.

During the course of this program, students are encouraged to research on a project and this usually happens in the last two semesters. This research project forms an integral part of their final evaluation leading to the M.Tech degree.

In the final assessment, the students are graded on Theory paper, Term work (tests, assignments), Training and Research Project.

## Syllabus

The course contains of both core and elective courses. The syllabus might vary from institution to institution. However, the common topics covered in the course are as follows:
