Marine engineering is the study of marine vessels and related structures which includes boats, ships and oil rigs. Marine engineers are involved in usage of heavy mechanical and electrical application for the design, development, and maintenance of the engineered product. Marine engineers handle important tasks such as powering and mechanization aspects of marine vessels although basic designing aspect is done by naval architects. All the aspects related to water bodies are to be kept in mind while building marine vessels and objects.
There are many different aspects related to this field such as difference in soil mechanisms in water and on land. Offshore engineers are involved in construction of oil rigs and fixed vessels. Both the government institutions as well as private ones are interested in this particular field. Trade in sea has expanded and hence this field has gained more relevance than ever. Maritime industry has a huge say in international trade and hence is very important. Germany is known as the land of engineering and hence is the perfect destination to study this course here.
