GATE Syllabus

  • The paper is so fresh that guessing the syllabus and other things would be too uncertain this time. We will have to wait till August/September to hear all the update regarding these subjects from the organising institute.

  • IIT Kharagpur has a similar department named Ocean Engg and Naval Architecture. IIT Madras has a similar department Ocean Engineering, which comprises so many courses. The course details are somewhat similar to Geotechnical Engineering.

  • Marine Foundation Engineering is taught as a B.Tech. Program Elective in NIT Trichy, the syllabus of the same is quite related to Geotechnical Engineering.

What is Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering?

  • As you might know, more than 70% of the earth is made up of water. Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering plays the role in navigating through it. They deal with the design of floating vessels and the integration of their components.

  • While the Naval Architects design the vessel, Marine Engineers are tasked to ensure that the ship systems function as per the design.
