Marine engineering is very big in India and is only increasing in its importance. Many of the colleges in India are introducing high quality courses in this area, and the country values this subject very highly. In terms of further information relating to this, the best place to get in touch with is the Institute of Marine Engineers India (www.imare.in/aboutus.html) or the Marine Engineering and Research Institute. Here you will be able to gain advice on training and information relating to how to get into the industry.
As with marine engineering, biomedical engineering is also an industry with a lot of scope. More and more universities in India are offering this as a course in its own right and employment is well paid. Good biomedical engineers are very sought after. A good website for further information is www.iitd.ac.in/center/cbme/
In addition to the above, aerospace engineering is becoming increasingly popular in India. It is regulated by NIT and ITT which are specialist engineering education systems in India. NIT give priority to those who have a local connection to the area where the university is based, and so incoming students are less likely to be accepted in such establishments. However, the ITT based schools will offer places to international applicants who excel in the entrance exam.
