    friend,

    No ,you cannot join merchant navy after completing BCA because for going into merchant in navigational

    and engineering fields one should have degree of graduation in engineering field.

    So sorry friend,you have to choose another field of your interest.

    yes you can join in it.
    For merchant Navy, you need to be the age of in between 16 -24 and medically fit and at least 12th pass.
    the higher qualification is not so much important.

    Re: Can I get a job in Merchant Navy after completing B.C.A?

    Basic requirement for merchant navy is B.Sc. degree in mechanical or marine engineering,

    students who have completed their 12th with PCM (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics) are eligible to join as Deck Cadets.

    Admission is open to both unmarried male and female candidates; age should not be more than 20 years (on 1st September of the entry year): those belonging to the SC/ST have this rule relaxed by about 5 yrs.

    To apply for merchant navy- physics, chemistry and maths in +2 is compulsory or B.Tech from any stream. So you cant apply for this course.
    The age should be under 20 as you are BCA, you will be more than 20. but if you belong to reserve category, there is relaxation for 5 years.
