Academic facilites are targeted at the knowledge development aspect of learning at TMI. These facilities include air conditioned classrooms, laboratories, a library, an auditorium and faculty offices.
A large number of classrooms are fully air-conditioned and are equipped with modern audio-visual aids. Subjects that require specialised equipment to be used during instruction are taught in suitably equipped, dedicated rooms. Each classroom can accommodate upto 40 students, and larger drawing halls are available when required.
Laboratories are essential in supporting the classroom taught aspects of science, engineering and computer related subjects. To fulfill the needs of students and teachers, various well-equipped laboratories have been set up to demonstrate and teach the principles of material testing, mechanics, hydraulics, electric control systems, electronic equipment and electric machinery.
Computer based training modules like Full Mission Ship Handling and Engine Room Simulator including Electronic Chart Display System, Radar and Marine Communication Simulators are also used extensively.
The campus has three modern computer centres equipped with high performance servers and workstations. A wealth of software and several operating system platforms provide extensive opportunities and capabilities for advancing computer skills and allow the use of modern teaching methods like computer simulation and computer based instruction. TMI is keenly aware of the importance of computers in all professions and will ensure that these facilities keep evolving to keep pace with the needs of students to develop a high degree of proficiency in computers related to their discipline.
A dedicated broadband connection from VSNL supported by an ISDN backup connection provides Internet connectivity to the campus. The fully switched network plus WiFi capability in the residential hostels provides residents with 24x7 Internet access from almost anywhere on campus.
The 7,000 sq. ft. library caters exclusively to the students and faculty of TMI. It offers a broad range of titles relevant to maritime disciplines, mechanical engineering, computers and the basic sciences. The Library also receives a large number of popular magazines and current maritime journals. Multi-media resources are also available and are expected to grow. The library remains open over extended hours for the benefit of all the residents and is used extensively for research related to project assignments.
A 280 seated fully air-conditioned auditorium with modern projection facilities and carefully designed acoustic characteristics provides a venue for seminars, large group presentations and special events including students' extra-curricular activities.
