ARCHITECTURE Keeping in mind this aspect this course is formulated where Ocean Engineering in its broadest sense is concerned with all upto 5th semester the subjects taught are common and 6th engineering systems in the ocean. This includes systems for semester onwards courses relevant to this programme exploration and exploitation of the vast oceanic resources such namely “Energy Management & Policy”, “Petroleum Resource as offshore oil and gas, sea-bed minerals, biological resources Management” “Petroleum Marketing”, “Petroleum Asset like marine and sea food, etc. Ocean Engineering also involves Management” etc. are introduced. By undergoing this systems that utilize the ocean for transportation and programme students will be in an advantageous position after recreational purpose like ships and marine vehicles of different they join any Petroleum Industry. Moreover job opportunities variety, submarine and underwater vehicles, pleasure crafts, will be manifold in diversified as well as in specialized fields. floating resorts, etc. Yet another important component of ocean 116. PROCESS ENGINEERING WITH MBA engineering is related to sea-coasts and its protection, and marine hazards and its mitigation through engineering In the present day globally competitive economic environment, solutions. In short, any system that uses the ocean, operates the industry needs to be innovative and willing to keep pace in the ocean or related to the ocean in some sense falls under with the technological developments. Present day process the purview of an Ocean Engineer. Naval Architecture, an plants operate at a very high capacity and constantly endeavour important branch of Ocean Engineering, deals primarily with to improve their production efficiency with minimal energy ocean transportation systems such as ships. Due to its historic consumption while meeting the environmental and industrial importance, Naval Architecture stands out as a separate entity, safety concerns.
