    Re: Can I join Merchant Navy in Engine Department after completing mechanical engineering and software engineering?

    Hi ,

    You can join Merchant Navy in 'Engine Department' but for that you have complete at least 10 months or 12 months of Pre - Sea training in Marine Engineering.
    For engineers who are not from Marine engineering but from Mechanical, Electrical and Electronics and Communication Pre-Sea training are also offered by recruiting company itself.
    However, if not you can complete your training from some good and DGS (Directorate General of Shipping). Since, the course is costly therefore some recruiting shipping companies offer that course to recruiting candidates itself.

    after completion of training you will be absorbed or recruited by any shipping company and will be able to join Engine Department of ships, cruise, sea vessels as a Fifth Engineer or Fourth Engineer or Trainee Engineer.

    Salary may be anything between 25,000 - 45,000 for above posts.

    Yes you can join Merchant Navy after completing engineering with mechanical department......
    The only thing you have to do is to give the exam of either CDS I or CDS II which is the exam for Combined Defence Services for different post in Defece conducted by the UPSC.......
    As you are not Marine Engineers so before joining Merchant Navy you need to do Pre sea training which is of generally 9 to 12 months........ you can take this training from any institute or company.......and your age must be between 19 to 25 years............
    Satisfying all the above criteria you can apply for the Merchant Navy.............
