|WELCOME TO MERI, MUMBAI|
|From the Officer Incharge Desk|
Marine Engineering and Research Institute (M.E.R.I.), formerly known as Directorate of Marine Engineering Training (D.M.E.T.), was established in the year 1949 by the Govt. of India, when the need was felt to train Marine Engineers separately.
The main Aim and commitment of D.M.E.T. was to prepare young cadets into fine marine engineers by imparting paramilitary type training with a good mix of academics and practical hands-on training in marine workshops.
Same dedication and commitment is continuing over the past 60 years and it’s the M.E.R.I.’s heritage and trust of shipping Industry which has taken many cadets to various levels of competence on board ships as well as ashore. The many assignments taken by ex-cadets of M.E.R.I. also includes a well deserved posting at United Nations (U.N.), IMF, World Maritime University to name a few prize postings.
As the shipping was expanding and need of having large numbers of qualified officers was felt, gates were open to graduate engineers. M.E.R.I. rose to the occasion and started a one year training programme to adopt Graduates in Mechanical Engineering / Naval Architecture to become Maine Engineers. Since 1975 M.E.R.I. has successfully trained 2227 G.M.E. cadets and they are doing very well in shipping and related shore industries.
Again when the need was felt to have officers trained both in Nautical & Engineering streams, the polyvalent officers course was conceived and it was M.E.R.I. Mumbai in year 2002 that was given the task of designing and starting the course. MERI rose to the challenge of putting syllabus and curriculum and affiliation to University of Mumbai in place and the course was commenced in August, 2003 with 15 cadets. The cadets are selected through IIT-JEE earlier & now through IMU-CET and till date MERI has successfully trained more than 200 cadets and the reports received from the Shipping Companies have been very encouraging.
Again 4 year B.Tech (Marine Engineering) degree programme has been commenced from the academic year 2013-14.
It has always been M.E.R.I.’s privilege to set the standards and a bench mark for others to copy and achieve. It’s the trust of shipping industry, which makes M.E.R.I. stand tall amongst all maritime training Institutes. As a legacy institute of IMU, MERI of IMU Mumbai campus is moving forward with pride and renewed energy as its infrastructure is being reinforced with equipment and simulators of latest technology.
