Training Methodology - B. Sc. Nautical Science
To turn students into successful shipboard officers, TMI has adopted a unique approach that builds a strong knowledge base. Students are given the skills with which to apply this knowledge in a shipboard environment and are also inculcated with sense of discipline, team spirit and the right attitude for achieving success.
Building a strong knowledge base
The Nautical Science Programme has courses that cover Navigation, Cargo Operations, Ship Operation, Seamanship and Workshop practice. TMI faculty members have decades of experience both in academics as well as industry, and have an in-depth understanding of shipboard responsibilities.
Skills to succeed in shipboard environment
To intimately acquaint students with the rigours of the marine environment, the Institute is equipped with simulators that can be used to deliver a realistic rendering of the ship board environment.
Inculcating the right attitude
Today discipline, team spirit, a well-rounded personality and professional pride are prerequisites for a successful merchant navy officer. To groom its students for excellence in this context, TMI maintains the requisite disciplinary regime, requires participation in both team and individual sports, fosters cultural interests and pursues a curriculum committed to a holistic education. Students are continually evaluated along all these dimensions.
