Don Bosco Maritime Academy is affiliated to NMIMS University, Mumbai
Don Bosco Maritime Academy has been set up to train prospective and serving seagoing personnel, as per the STCW Convention of International Maritime Organisation (IMO).
We are committed to producing engineers who will be among the best in the marine industry. Since it is not the profit motive that drives us, we are able to plough back surplus funds into growth and development on all fronts - academic, technological and professional. Our driving ambition is to make sure that our students turn out to be excellently trained, competent and committed engineers.Our location on the campus of St. Joseph’s Technical School Trust is spread over an area of 6.25 acres. Lush green football fields and magnificent trees surround 10,000 sq. feet of enclosed workshops, creating an ideal atmosphere to pursue learning.
Our main training course is ‘ATS for Marine Engineers’ and has the approval of the Directorate General of Shipping, Government of India. We also have an ISO 9001:2000 certification for this course from Indian Register Quality Systems.
We have active liaison with several shipping companies, dry docks, new constructions in the offshore and onshore industries, catering to services, processes and construction. We also conduct varied training programmes and conduct skill assessment tests for engineers and technicians of these companies. Some of the major names in shipping and associated industries are our clients. We insist on 100 per cent attendance for the entire duration of any course and all our trainees are required to follow rules and conduct themselves with decorum and dignity.
Don Bosco Maritime Academy has been floated with the objective of Training Prospective & Serving Seagoing Personnel, as per the STCW Convention of International Maritime Organisation(IMO). We are committed to education and our Academy will be run with the intention of producing engineers who will be among the best in the marine industry. Profits are not our motive and surplus funds generated will be ploughed back in the academy to improve its standard Academically, Technologically and Professionally. We will be striving to make sure that our boys will be competent engineers, in every sense of the word.
ur Academy is situated on the large serene campus of St. Joseph's I.T.I.. This can easily be reached from Vidyavihar, Kurla and Ghatkopar stations of Central Railway and Santacruz station of Western Railway by road (BEST Buses No 322 & 426 which ply between Vidyavihar and Santacruz (E) stations stop just outside the academy, while several buses pass from nearby junction - named "Kamani").
There is a growing shortage of trained marine engineers. The many existing facilities in India, for training of marine engineers (MERI, Apprentice Training Schemes of recognised marine workshops, Graduate Engineer's Training Schemes by Shipping Companies in collaboration with marine workshops & similar) cannot cope up with the growing demands of the industry - Indian & Foreign Shipping Companies. Thus following the guidelines issued by Directorate General of Shipping - Govt. of India, about Alternate Training Scheme for marine engineers, we started a course for Engineer Officer in Charge of a Watch (STCW Regulation III / 4) on 1st September 1998.
This course is approved by D.G. Shipping and is based on IMO (International Maritime Organisation) Model Course 7.04
We were the first academy in Western India to start this course & we have an ISO 9002 Quality Accreditation by IRQS(Indian Register Quality systems - a Division of Indian Register of Shipping).
We must state here that the course itself is very intensive and requires hard work and serious studies. It is not an easy course.
We thus invite applications only from students who are genuinely interested in Marine Engineering as a career & not as a past time.
