    Hi dude,

    There are two options available to join this stream. One is to join after 12th Science and the other after Marine Engineering. However even candidates with Mechanical Engineering background can join in for this stream. But first they need to appear for the entrance test like those conducted by T.S Chankaya and various other institutes. On clearing the test they will called for the interview . interview are many types.They will also need to clear the physical fitness test. After that they will need to undergo training for 3-4 months. This will vary depending on the institute the candidate joins. Also the fees will vary. You can appear for these exam when you are in the final semester.

    ALL THE BEST !!!
