Training & Placement Cell

The innovative Internship component of a TMI, Pune degree programme, apart from serving as a training element, is a key factor for the effective placement of graduates. This initiative provides the opportunity for an in-depth evaluation of a student by a potential employer and a jump start to employer specific training. TMI's experience has been that almost all students are absorbed by the same companies that provided them with their internship opportunity.

A small number of marine engineering students preparing for careers as shipboard engineers intern with shore based organisations that have engineering facilities similar to onboard systems or that produce major engine room equipment for ships. While these same organisations have shown tremendous interest in recruiting their TMI interns after graduation, ship managers and ship owners greatly value the in depth knowledge gained by these interns and have recruited them for shipboard positions.

The success and efficacy of the Internship Programme is in no small measure due to the fact that TMI students are particularly well prepared to be effective workers during the internship period and that the learning process during internship is guided by a structured programme.

Over the years, more than 90% of TMI graduates have succesfully secured positions in reputed shipping companies before their graduation day. Recruiting companies recognise that TMI students have undergone an intense four-year curriculum that has converted bright students into qualified marine officers.

TMI graduates are able to add immense value to any organisation, having been trained to take on job responsibilities from the very first day. Our innovative Internship-cum-Placements programme puts our graduates a step ahead of the rest and we have found that most students are absorbed by the same companies that provided them with their internship opportunity.

Internship Programme Structure

An innovative and valued component of the TMI Internship Programme is its structured and methodical approach which aims to develop on the skills and knowledge gathered by TMI students during their three years campus based instruction.

Structured Programme

Prior to commencing the internship component of thier degree programmes, each TMI student is given a Training and Resource Manual. This manual explains how the Internship Programme is structured into clearly identified sections, each of which serve to expose the intern to different facets of seafaring and their roles in learning the tasks and practices involved. Interns thus gain a complete and clear understanding of what the Internship Programme aims to achieve and are therefore able to relate their on board tasks and responsibilities to their overall academic and career goals.

In-depth Learning

Learning is induced through probing questions and exercises intended to stimulate inquisitiveness, leading to a more thorough understanding of the subject. An intern is expected to devote an average of about 6-8 hours per week towards this type of learning and feedback.

Performance Appraisal

Performance during the Internship Programme counts towards the final grade of a student, and to this end each intern has to provide evidence of his / her learning on board by submitting an Assignments and Project Report to the Faculty at TMI on their return. Each intern also has to address a seminar on the training they have received, to senior TMI faculty. These aspects of the appraisal process build upon TMI's emphasis on "real world" report writing and communications skills and impart a sense of achievment and self confidence in students.
