Marine engineering deals with the nautical
Architecture and science and basically is meant
For research conducted in oceans, coastal or
Inland waters connected to the sea. Marine
Engineers have the entire responsibility of the
Ship's technical management.

DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR MARINE ENGINEERING
Some of the important duties that people who have done marine engineering (maritime engineering) perform are:
Monitoring and maintenance of mechanical systems – Engineers of each rank on board ship is allocated specific machinery and systems for maintenance and monitoring purpose. Machinery systems are divided among all engineers and it is the duty of each engineer to ensure his/her machinery is running at all times. Marine engineers are also required to look after the machinery on deck.
Proper record keeping and planning, maintenance – The engine room department works as a team to ensure maintenance of all machinery systems is carried out according to the planned maintenance system. Precise record keeping of various parameters is carried out for official paperwork and reporting.
Fuel oil bunkering – Marine engineers also handle the transfer of fuel oil to the ship from a bunker station or barge. It is usually the duty of the 4th engineer, who also takes regular soundings of the fuel oil tanks and report it to the chief engineer for planning bunkering operations.
Emergency breakdown and repair – The study of marine engineering also teaches how to deal with major maintenance and breakdown of machinery systems at sea. Though marine engineers are quite capable of the same, there are times when there might be a need for experts. In such cases, marine engineers are required to work with the experts to repair and resolve the issue.
Apart from the above-mentioned duties, a marine engineer on ships is required to follow all the instructions of the chief engineer, the head of the engine room department on the ship.
