    Re: Can I join the merchant navy after computer science engineering?

    If you have pursued the B.Tech course from a recognised institute you are eligible to join for the Merchant Navy. But to join this field you need to first clear the entrance exam. There are many entrance exams like the IGNOU OPENMAT and also the IIT -JEE which are conducted for this purpose. On clearing the test you need to go through an interview round. Thereafter if selected you need to also undergo a physical fitness test. It is must to clear the physical fitness test as you should show any sign of being sea sick. Also it is a must to have a clear vision of 6/6. On clearing these rounds you will need to undergo a 1 year pre sea training from institutes like LBS, MERI etc. On clearing the pre sea training period you need to either join a Indian or Foreign shipping company. In terms of renumeration the foreign shipping companies offer better pay scale.

    Merchant navy is one of the most adventures career options one can choose to pursue. It involves lots of travel over the sea which can take up more than six months in a single stretch. As to join these institutions, every candidate must undergo a pre sea training course in any one of the marine institutions. Candidates need to have more than 50% of marks as to get admission to any of these courses. The notification for the entrance test will be published in various news papers. Eligible candidates can apply and attend the exam. If qualified in the test candidates will be called in for personnel interview and physical fitness test and can go through the pre sea training courses. After the training from renowned institution candidates can work for shipping companies in India and also abroad.

    Re: Can I join the merchant navy after computer science engineering?




    My dear friend.

    I want to tell you that you are eligible for the Merchant Navy exam after Graduation i.e B.Tech.

    But you will have to give the CDS i.e (Combined Defense Services) exam.
    The CDS exam is conducted by the UPSC i.e Union Public Service Commission.

    UPSC conducts a lot of exams like CDS.
    NDA exam is also conducted by the UPSC for giving Students the opportunity to go into the Defense Field.

    NDA exam is for getting into defense field after 12th.
    CDS exam is for getting into defense services after Graduation.

    The necessary criteria for the CDS exam is as follows:

    --> The candidate must be having Indian Nationality.

    --> The candidate must be aging between 19-24 for merchant navy.

    --> Both boys and girls are eligible for CDS exam.

    --> The candidate must have at least done graduation from any field.

    --> The candidate must be Physically Fit.

    So if you satisfy all the above conditions then you are eligible for the Merchant Navy.

    I hope the information will be satisfactory.

    Regards
    tanveersandhu.
