Indian Maritime University, Mumbai Port Campus consists of two institutes namely, LBS College of Advanced Maritime Studies & Research and the Marine Engineering & Research Institute, Mumbai.

 

LBS CAMSAR is a premier post-sea Maritime Education and Training Institution offering a comprehensive range of courses for Merchant Navy personnel. LBS CAMSAR was founded in October 1948 under the recommendations of the Merchant Navy Training Committee as Central Government premier post sea training institute for merchant Navy officers of Navigation & Engineering for giving skilled technical instructions to the Merchant Navy officers of Navigation and Engineering Department for Certificate of Competency. Named as 'Lal Bahadur Shastri Nautical & Engineering College' as a token of gratitude to former Prime Minster Late Shri. Lal Bahadur Shastri for making the present site available. Renamed as Lal Bahadur College of Advanced Maritime Studies & Research in 1994.

 

It is the only institution in the world offering Extra Masters and Extra First Class Engineering courses, the highest programmes in the field of Nautical Science and Marine Engineering respectively.

 

Marine Engineering & Research Institute, formerly known as Directorate of Marine Engineering Training (D.M.E.T.) was established by the Govt. of India in the year 1949 with its head office in Kolkata and branch office in Mumbai to train marine engineers. D.M.E.T. was renamed Marine Engineering and Research Institute in the year 1995. Marine Engineering and Research Institute (MERI), Mumbai is not only a pioneer Maritime Training Institute in India but in the whole of South East Asia. This is the only institution in India offering B.Sc. (Maritime Science) degree course, giving dual certification of Nautical & Engineering stream for employment onboard the Merchant Navy ships.

 

As the shipping industry was expanding and the need of having large numbers of qualified officers was felt, gates were open to graduate engineers. MERI rose to the occasion and started a one year training programme to adopt Graduate in Mechanical Engineering/ Naval Architecture to become Marine Engineers. MERI-Mumbai is accredited as an ISO 9001 : 2008 Institute and it is also Graded by ICRA as Grade - One Institute.
