Student's Testimonials


On this ship we have two junior specialists. In a range of four months I have seen three distinctive junior specialists close down referring to that the ship is extreme. Be that as it may, I am proceeding and my second and chief specialists have enough trust in giving me autonomous watch keeping duties. I thank Hindustan Institute of Maritime to given me such a wonderful life with Marine Degree.
