College Infrastructure
Infrastructure is well buil up with swimming pool, big playground for cricket and football,well equipped gymnasium. Also the classrooms are air-conditioned along with computerised library. Hostels are separate for juniors and seniors for all 4 years.
Academics
The best marine engineers of india who are also the college passouts are the professors here. Vast amount of experience comes with these professors who impart their best knowledge to the students. Best in academics
Placements
Strong alumni of the college helps the young students into recruitment. Big companies like MSC,NYK,SCI,FLEET MANAGEMENT,ANGLO EASTERN MANAGEMENT,SCORPIO TANKERS, CHELLSHIPS,GREAT EASTERN SHIPPING, etc recruit the high minds of the campus
Value-for-money
It is a central gobt institution with the fee nominal as compared to other marine colleges. Loan is easily available from the SBI Imu branch with out security. Uniforms, boiler suits, safety shoes, books are all included in the fees
Campus Life
It is a fully residential program with probably the best experience of paramilitary system. The seniors are supportive. Sports activities are regularly held and the biggest of them all THE TEMPEST- BIGGEST MARIME FEST IN INDIA.
Anything Else
I will recommend this college to all young prospects who aspire to become marime engineer and get into the seas. Sea life is tough and this college will make you a worthy seaman who can sustain the toughness.

College Infrastructure
It has a campus with six different well maintained hostels, two academic buildings, workshop, electrical, mechanical and material testing lab. There's a large ground where cadets train in cricket, football and hockey based on their choice. It has a swimming pool, volleyball, basketball, badminton court, TT tables and coaches for each games. the rooms are to be cleaned by the cadets and often seniors and officers check them. Food is average in taste but very nutritious.
Academics
The college's main degree is BTech. Marine Engineering. Getting this degree helps the cadets to work on commercial ships while while they sail across the world. the job of a Marine Engineer is to maintain the ship's machinery, from main engines to a refrigerator on board. The college has only officers to teach the core subjects, most of them who had studied this college themselves and achieved wonders. The curriculum is sufficient to make a good marine engineer, along with the training.
Placements
No doubt the placements have gone comparatively low in recent years due to recession. but still our college manages to place every cadet who doesn't have any supplementary papers due. the salary packages ranges from $600 to $1000 based on your practical knowledge and company. The placement interviews are held such that it tests the cadets in their worst situation, because job isn't easy at sea. But with the help of Officers and professors, we are able to do it the best we can.
Value-for-money
The fees currently charged to the cadets is 2.25 lakhs which in my view worth it. It is a government college and has every basic facilities that one needs. The college trains us in every way possible so that we don't face difficulties while we are at sea.
Campus Life
The College is located in Alipore in Old Kolkata. it has metro which connects us to the whole city in an affordable price. the campus life is fun, the traditions of college helps us to learn a lot of things in different and unique ways.
Anything Else
I would recommend this college to you all just if you are interested in this unique lifestyle, full of discipline and hardcore training. If you are looking just for money, don't go for this option, because the companies pay loads of money just because it is that difficult to survive on ships. If you have a fascination for sailing, go for it.
