AMET had the privilege and unprecedented status of getting unveiled as a Maritime University from the hands of the secretary general of the International Maritime Organization, Mr.Efithimios E Mitrapoulos. AMET serves as an ocean of knowledge for over 4000 students pursuing courses ranging from diploma to Doctoral programs through 4 schools and 2 intensive research and training centers for marine and marine related activities.

INDIAN COAST GUARD AND AMET COLLABORATION SHORT TERM (TRAINING) COURSE OPRC IMO Level – II Course The OPRC IMO Level II course is an intensive 5-day course conforming to the IMO guidelines and fine-tuned to Indian Coastline and topography. The course is a comprehensive overview of each component, no less significant than the other, of its very title, viz Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Cooperation. The International Convention on Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Cooperation 1990, mandates that all stakeholders in the oil and allied Industries have responsible designated persons in their employ who are fully capable of appreciating the complexities involved in preventing, containing and mitigating the effects of an oil spill. It has developed three model training courses aimed at the following :Level 1 : First Responder Level 2 : On Scene commanders and Supervisors Level 3 : Senior Managers of oil spill response department/organisations

Immediate Objective of the Course: 1) To make the participant aware of his responsibilities and equip him with sufficient knowledge to understand the complexities in a spill response and to effectively lead a spill response team on scene. 2) To appreciate local sensitivities at various regions and effectively overcome any such mitigating factors through pre-planning and to finally effect a successful spill response. 3)

To identify and garner support of other local and regulatory Agencies with different areas of expertise, deployment of equipments and efficiently coordinate a spill response.

4) To be able to build a local oil spill response strategy on the most probable case spill scenario.

Long Term Objective of the course: 1) To build a base of knowledge workers with sufficient expertise at strategic locations along the coastline. 2)

Development of the local area objectives, response priorities, and logistics requirements.

3) Development of an oil spill response strategy for worst case spill in the local area. 4) Development of local oil spill planning committee processes. 5) Development of local oil spill response strategies for other areas within the country, promoting integration of these local strategies into the national contingency plan. Certificate is issued jointly by the Indian Coast Guard and AMET under the Aegis of IMO.

COURSE REGULATIONS SEMESTER SYSTEM: The University follows the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) for all the programmes. An academic year consists of two semesters and each semester consists of 15 -18 weeks of Academic work equivalent to 90 teaching days. The semester system accelerates the teaching learning process and enables the students to improve their learning constantly. The CBCS Regulation – 2017 is followed with effect from the Academic Year 2017-18. CHOICE BASED CREDIT SYSTEM: The CBCS provides academic flexibility in designing curriculum with choices and assigning credits based on the course content and hours of teaching. It provides a “Cafeteria” type approach in which the students can take courses of their choice, learn at their own pace, undergo additional courses and acquire more than the required credits. Further it adopt an inter-disciplinary approach to learning. The salient feature of the CBCS programme is the inclusion of courses such as Core, Elective, Foundation, Skill Enhancement, Internship, Industrial Visit, Industrial Training, etc. Core Course: There are Core Courses in every semester. This is the course which is to be compulsorily studied by a student as a core requirement to complete the requirement of a programme in a said discipline of study Elective Course: Elective course is a course which can be chosen from a pool of subjects. It may by:  Supportive to the discipline of study  Providing an expanded scope  Enabling an exposure to some other discipline/domain  Nurturing student’s proficiency/skill. Foundation Course: The Foundation courses are based upon the content that leads to Knowledge enhancement. They are mandatory for all disciplines. Skill Enhancement Courses: It includes the courses that enable the students to interact effectively and harmoniously with the society. The skill enhancement includes Communication, team work, leadership quality, personality development, self-management, decision making, etc. REQUIREMENTS TO COMPLETE A SEMESTER Course Completion A student is normally expected to complete the 4 years UG programme in 8 Semesters but in any case not more than 8 years (16 Semesters), 3 year UG/Diploma programmes in 6 Semester but in any case not more than 6 years (12 Semesters) and 2 year PG programmes in 4 Semester but in any case not more than 4 years (8 Semesters).

Paper setting and evaluation can be done internally. The Continuous Internal Assessment marks for all the theory papers will be 40 which shall be apportioned as follows: CIA Test I - 5 marks CIA Test II - 5 marks Model Examination - 20 marks Assignment for UG /Diploma Seminar / Assignment for PG programmes - 5 marks Attendance - 5 marks Total - 40 Marks The Continuous assessment is a permanent component which will be carried forward for Arrear Examinations also. QUESTION PAPER PATTERN The question paper pattern from 2017-2018 onwards for all the courses – Section A – Answer all questions (10 Questions) 10 x 2 = 20 marks Section B - Answer any 5 questions out of 8 questions 5 x 6 = 30 marks Section C - Answer all questions (Either/OR pattern) 5 x 10 = 50 marks Total = 100 marks However, some special and unique subjects in Harbour and Ocean Engineering, Naval Architecture, Information Technology and Nautical Sciences have different question paper pattern. Humility is the vital capability of the capable: To convert foes, the weapon of the noble. Thirukural
