B.Sc. Nautical Science Programme
At Tolani Maritime Institute (TMI), B.Sc. Nautical Science programme is spread over a period of three years and is divided into six academic semesters. The programme is designed to provide a foundation in Navigation, Physics, Mathematics, Cargo Work, Ship Operation and Practical Workshop & Seamanship. After a training period of six semesters on campus, Students become eligible to undergo a 12 months structured training programme on board ships, which is a mandatory requirement to become eligible for Second Mate examination. The institute will provide all assistance through campus placement program for eligible students to be placed onboard ships for shipboard training without any extra fee. Those students, who do not wish to sail on board ships, can opt for any other career as deemed fit by them.
The essence of Nautical Science programme is to train students to become competent deck officers in the maritime environment, capable of managing navigational and cargo work duties. To facilitate the unique and practical oriented training, the Institute is comprehensively equipped with a Ship in Campus with all ship board structures and equipment that is a representative of shipboard environment, Ship Maneuvering simulator, ECDIS simulator, Steering simulator and Liquid Cargo Handling simulator. Hands on experience is given in the detailed maintenance techniques and procedures for the equipment that a Student will operate as a deck officer. Shipboard environment is unique and training therefore, must be suitably tailored. At TMI, due emphasis is placed on training on simulators, in seamanship and contextual training to intimately acquaint a Student with the demands of the marine environment.
