The birth of Indian Maritime University is a long cherished dream of the maritime community of India.
The IMU has been established as a Central University by the Government of India under an Act of Parliament, namely, the Indian Maritime University Act 2008.
The Act was brought into force on 14th November 2008 and notified in the Gazette of India. The University will integrate into its fold the existing seven maritime academic institutions, namely, National Maritime Academy-Chennai, T S Chanakya-Mumbai, Lal Bahadur Shastri College of Advanced Maritime Studies & Research-Mumbai, Marine Engineering Research Institute-Mumbai, Marine Engineering Research Institute-Kolkata, Indian Institute of Port Management-Kolkata and National Ship Design & Research Centre-Visakhapatnam.
I assure everyone who is going to pass through the portals of the Indian Maritime University will have an opportunity to gain the best learning practices from a panel of dedicated and experienced faculty members. The IMU will be an aggregate of experienced faculty, state of art infrastructure, excellent ambience and efficient administration.
Our strength and uniqueness lie in our ability to integrate theories with practice. We are committed to provide maritime education and training and consultancy based on the realities of local and global business.
