About the Department
This college is the first self financing private engineering college in India to get approval by Directorate General of Shipping, Ministry of Shipping, Road Transport and Highways, Government of India to start the four year B.E. Marine Engineering course. The students after graduation, will be able to join as fifth engineers on board ship.
About the course
SVCE is a pioneer in starting Marine Engineering as an undergraduate degree programme through the University of Madras and was started in 1998. The syllabus is framed on the guide lines of IMO and STCW 1995 convention. Marine Engineering course is compulsorily residential and includes physical training, games, workout in gym and swimming practice . Our marine engineering course is affiliated to Anna University with effect from 2001.
The course consists of two parts, first part B.E. Marine Engineering Degree course as per rules and regulations approved by Anna University and the second part is completion of 15 competencies of Marine Engineering training as per rules and regulations laid down by the Director General of Shipping, Government of India. Which includes 26 weeks marine workshop practical and afloat training. The Director General of Shipping has approved the 4 Year Bachelor of Engineering Course in MARINE ENGINEERING conducted by this college vide approval No. TR/A/73/2002 dated 17 June 2002. College INDOS No. - 806 Course ID - 64. Also D G Shipping has Certified this 4 years B.E. Marine Engineering is equivalent to the 4 years Marine Engineering Degree course conducted by MERI, Kolkata vide letter No.3-TR(26)/99 dated 02 Aug 2002.
The curriculum is based on enhancing the fundamental knowledge, analytical skills, creativity, perspective and ethics. The programme aims to advance knowledge in theory and practice with innovative applications of Engineering and Scientific principles. We cover all the core disciplinary areas of Marine Engineering, which includes Marine Diesel Engines, Marine Auxiliary Machinery, Marine Boilers and Steam Engines, Naval Architecture and Ship construction, Marine Refrigeration and Air conditioning, Marine Machinery system and Marine Machinery Design and Marine Electrical Technology. We also cover interdisciplinary subjects like Mechanical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Manufacturing Technology. Programme also includes elective courses covering important areas such as finite-element techniques, maritime economics, ships safety, environmental protection, personnel care and special duty vessels.
Other Features of the Programme are
SVCE has memorandum of understanding with Cochin shipyard Ltd., Cochin for afloat training for 26 weeks for Marine Engg.cadets.
Total strength of the teaching faculty in the Marine Dept is 9 out of which two are with vast sea experience as chief engineer.
To provide high standard of education and quality training fulfilling the level of knowledge and competence specified in the International Conventions on Standards of Training, Certification & Watch keeping (STCW Conventions) as stipulated by International Maritime Organization (IMO).
To impart training with technical knowledge and practical skills to enable the Marine Engineering cadets to be competent to carry out the engineering watch keeping duties safely with an aim for making quality marine engineers of International Standards.To enable the cadets to pursue bright career, both ON and "OFFSHORE".
Programme Education Objectives(PEOs)
PEOs are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the programme is preparing its graduates to accomplish.
- To produce academically sound, disciplined and competent marine engineers.
- To provide opportunity for students to work as part of teams on multidisciplinary Projects or companies
- To provide students with a sound foundation in the mathematical, scientific and engineering fundamentals necessary to formulate, solve and analyze engineering problems and to prepare them for graduate studies.
- Towards this end, the course content and practical training have been designed so as to meet the national and International needs.
