Work Shops

“Repetition / practice is the mother of learning” is an old Russian saying. At HINSAE we firmly believe in repeatedly practicing the work that would be undertaken in a shipyard/ or a ship. This includes plumbing, wielding, carpentry, machines, lathe, etc. Cadets learn all the skill sets that are needed under the tutelage of experienced instructors who are also experts in the field of shipbuilding & repair. Guest lecturers / visiting faculty from reputed shipyards/institutes around the world will give the cadets a deeper perspective of the course.
