Department of Marine Engineering offers an exciting carrier for adventurous cadets. It involves the construction and maintenance of ships and its machinery, other sailing vessels, port and cargo facilities at waterfront. Also known as Ocean Engineering, it broadly refers to the engineering of boats, ferry ships, barges, oil rigs and other marine vessels. Marine engineer officers are responsible for maintaining ship’s machineries such as the engine room main engine, generators, boilers, other auxiliaries and electric motors to ensure their proper functioning and Engine room watch keeping duties. The following are the salient features of our institution to enhance the student’s practical and technical knowledge during their course.
The Ship-in-Campus was established conforming to the guidelines of Directorate General of Shipping, Government of India and adheres to STCW/IMO requirements. Ship-in- Campus consist of machineries like Main Engine, Auxiliary Engine, Auxiliary Boiler & Auxiliary Machineries like Bilge Pump, Ballast Pump, Sea Water Pump, Fresh Water Generator, Purifier, Oily Water Separator, Incinerator etc. The entire system pipe lines of the Main engine & Auxiliary machineries have been designed as per the layouts found on board ship to give the cadets a practical understanding of the piping layout as found on board Merchant Navy Ships. Since the erection of the Ship-In-Campus many machineries& equipments have been added, to improve the practical knowledge of the cadets. This laboratory is a model for scientific and academic work. PSNCET has proposed a unique Training Manual for learning which covers all competencies specified by STCW 2010 code. The ship-in-campus training covers around 11-52 hrs. Of practical training and ensures effectiveness as well as quality of training. The main objective of ship-in-campus is to familiarize cadets with on board ship machineries & systems, impart understanding of the working principle of all systems and the overall ship propulsion system along with the maintenance routine that needs to be rigorously followed by every marine engineer on board ships. The training imparted to the cadets in ship-in-campus will make them well versed with routine activities, maintenance & operational task which they are likely to work with on board ship and the training is being given by professional marine engineers who have a good experience onboard and a good technical and practical knowledge.
It is the art of operating a ship or boat. Our institution is providing a good practical training with good practically skilled personnel. It involves topics and development of specialized skills including: Navigation and International maritime law, weather meteorology and forecasting, watch keeping at sea and port, ship-handling, Life boat and rescue boat handling, operation of deck equipments such as windlass, winches, anchors and cables, rope works and line handling, communications, sailing, engines, execution of evolutions such as towing, cargo handling equipment, dangerous cargoes and cargo storage, dealing with emergencies, survival at sea and search and rescue, fire fighting, duties involved in case of emergencies, alarm signals distress signaling, and using of Pyrotechniques.
The degree of knowledge needed within these areas is dependent upon the nature of the work and the type of vessel employed by a mariner.
Modern ships are increasingly dependent upon electrical, electronic and control engineering installations for their automatic operation. There is also greater use and reliance on complex computer-based systems. It is therefore essential that seagoing and shore based staff have a good appreciation of such systems, ensuring that they are maintained in an efficient operational and safe condition. The following knowledge is imported to the cadets like….
Purpose of this lab will benefit the marine engineer involved with electrical, control and software based systems and equipment in marine engineering applications. Delegates should possess an appreciation of the fundamentals of electrical and control engineering, and an appreciation of Lloyd’s Register’s related Rules. The course aims to provide knowledge in the survey of electrical and control engineering systems, to help you identify any non-compliance with Lloyd’s Register’s Rules and Regulations.
Workshop technology is the back bone of any engineering industry and when it comes to shipping, it becomes the most important aspect which is responsible for planning, construction operation and maintenance of a ship and its machinery. Any operation of shipping structure or machinery overhauling is not possible without workshop practices. So the practical marine engineers should posses a good hands on practice with workshop techniques like welding, cutting, Knowledge of operation of different machines, and to work with the safety culture.
PSN CET is only the source having Engine Room simulation practices within the premises. The training gives the cadets a good knowledge and familiarization of ship machinery operation which they are going to do as an engineer officer on board. At the end of the training every cadet will be familiar with the following:
Before attempting to extinguish, the fire must first be judged as being controllable by laboratory personnel. This depends on the judgment of the person making the decision and the factors involved: the size, intensity of the fire, the nature of the burning material, proximity of other flammable or explosive materials, availability of escape routes, availability of proper fire fighting equipment, and the safety of personnel in the area. Such kind of all relevant training has to be given through our laboratory with eminent persons as follows:
