    Dear friend,,
    Yes,,,you can join merchant navy after B.tech in electronics and telecommunication,,,all you will have to do is to apply for CDC certificate

    Also,,,You can apply for the post of a Radio Officer or an Electronics Officer
    Radio Officers and Electronic Officers are part and parcel of a modern ship.
    Working area
    Operation, repair and maintenance of radio and the electronic communication equipment, radar and other navigational aids are the basic functions of the Radio officers

    Best luck!!!!!

    Hellow Friend,
    As you have allready entered into marine field first you choose wether to continue in the same field or to come out of it
    If you whant to come out and make a study then join in managment related cource and make your future shine brigh as you all ready have an experience in marine field go for education in that field it self
    If you whant to make a job in government sector choose to go with DRDO,NDA,ARMY and RESEARCH AND DEVELOPEMENT FIELD
    Even simple option is join a computer language and come out of your profession and grab a job in different field as well and shine as you like
