    Normally to join Merchant you either need to have 12th standard degree in science and mathematics. The science subjects should include physics and chemistry. Thereafter they are required to go through a one year pre-sea training. Thereafter you join as a deck cadet. The other option is to complete your graduation in marine engineering. You can join the ship as an engineer thereafter. Since you have completed you graduation in computer science you will need to do a course for year to get trained for this area. You will need to appear for the entrance exams like Joint Entrance Exam, OPENNET exam to qualify for the course.

    You can enter merchant navy through direct entry. Students need to complete +2 with PCM are eligible to join the Deck Cadets. Candidates from Mechanical, Electrical and Technology Engineering are only eligible to join as Engine Cadet. In the Direct entry Deck Cadets candidates will undergo a pre-sea training course which will be carried out by the recruitment company. As for the Engineering cadets the pre-training will be for about 9 month duration. This will be carried out by MERI. A career in merchant navy is really tough. Candidates need to be in excellent physical form as to get selected in to the program. Please visit the official website to get more information.
