Welcome to the web site for professional Marine Engineers worldwide. Online since 1999, we have been providing information and resource to professionals and novices alike, in the maritime world.

I welcome you to discover what Marine Engineers do, and explore their important role in worldwide commercial shipping, which moves 90% of the world's trade. You will find the "site navigation" menu at the top, and a "about the site" menu at the bottom. Enjoy your stay, feel free to contact me.

Martin - Marine Engineer and Webmaster

Feature -  I have been running across a great deal of job postings, especially for junior engineering ranks. Anyone is free to post positions from all over the globe on this forum; I generally post jobs from Canada, where you need a Canadian Certificate of Competency to apply. Check out the latest jobs on the The Common Rail. The Monitor, the website's blog; where opinion pieces and relevant news are posted. The more current stuff happens on the Twitter account, @dieselduckster, is where we cheer all maritime matters, especially human matters.

In this Update - Finally, a proper update! Yes, as much as I love getting my brain into the website, it is considerably tedious, so sometimes it gets pushed back, replaced by the grind of daily life. But lately I've had an excessive amount of sea days, which has allowed me to catch up a bit.
Lots of new papers, quirks, memes, and such, all over the website. Lets start with some heritage; added material and tidied up the Detroit Diesel page, the Rudolph Diesel, the Prime Mover Development Page; added new art and graphics in the main historical page. Cleaned up and added some memes to the Job Area, Job Links and Images. In the Officer's Lounge, lots of new memes and graphics. New graphics and material in the Training Room.
The bulk of the new resources are uploaded to the Ship's Library and the Machinery Page. Check out brand new 1st Class Eletrotech Exam Help, and 11 other documents in the library, and 13 others papers on machinery and technology. From Happiness surveys, to autonomous papers, Engineering Knowledge lessons on pumps to coastal trade guidelines. A little bit of everything, all sure to be interesting, just look for the .
