Message From Principal



Dear All,

"A desire can change nothing, a decision can change something but a determination can change everything".

Dear Students, parents, Well-wishers and executives of the corporate, I welcome one and all on behalf of my Management to College of Ship Technology , Palakkad, Kerala. An institution approved and affiliated to Indian Maritime University, A Central University, Ministry of Shipping, Govt. of India.

India today stands as world’s third and fastest growing economic power. Our economy growing at around 7-8% per annum, and Indian Entrepreneurs emerging as global entrepreneurs. India’s potential in knowledge, preferred as a Destination for Technical Hub. India fast emerging as a destination for world class R&D Centers and Innovation hub. Young friends, these are the signs of even a brighter tomorrow for India and its people.

You must, therefore, be highly excited to make your own contributions to the growth and development of India of your dream. Shipbuilding industry is a specialised and customised industry. Due to its inherent nature, the ship building activities cannot be automated beyond a certain limit. Every ship at the building stage is a new project with wide range of variables and implications. The execution part needs meticulous planning and implementation. The knowledge base of managers and skill set of workers play a very important role in the output of the finished Ship. In order to achieve a reasonable level of output and productivity compared to the International ship building standards, Indian shipyards have to work to improve on several more fronts. One of the identified areas of concern is the knowledge and ability of the Ship Building Crew in understanding the processes and sequence of ship building activities from concept, design, planning, procurement, execution and delivery.
