What is Marine Engineering?
Since the time Europe ventured into sea voyages and went to explore and discover the world through the Marine Vessels, Ships and shipbuilding have gained prominence. Marine Engineering since that time in history has certainly evolved.
Marine Engineering is based on the study engineering of boats, ships, and oil rigs and any other marine vessel or structure, and also includes the study of oceanographic engineering and naval architecture.
