Academic Facilities

The purpose of education cannot be solved unless the tools provided to deliver it are as good as the education being imparted. Keeping this is mind the campus has been designed to enrich the teaching-learning process.

We have tried to keep in mind the needs of our students and develop a set-up which is conducive to their holistic development into able sailors. The Academic Halls are referred to as T.S.Rio or Training Ship Rio.


The classrooms are clean and well ventilated. Also to facilitate the triangular learning process within students we make use of a lot of audio-visual tools in our teaching methods. The classrooms are equipped with projectors and white boards to facilitate the teaching process.

Seamanship Lab-M/V Rio

Seamanship Lab is a specialized lab to enable the trainees to recognize the different parts as well as the equipment used on ships. Here students have access to material needed for rope work, lifesaving appliances and navigation equipment like autopilot, magnetic compass, GPS Navtex and telegraph panel.


Norman Cousins said, “A library is the delivery room for the birth of ideas, a place where history comes to life.” The library is a store house of knowledge and encourages students to develop the habit of reading for gaining knowledge as well as pleasure. The library houses many books related to maritime industry, skills, equipment and life. Periodicals and magazines are also available for students to keep up with the current affairs.


Chart work is the art of laying a safe course,fixing the position and reassuring that position,while steering the ship on that course.It’s an imperative job which every navigating officer should master. At TMA, we have a Chart Work room equipped with Admiralty charts to help students understand and learn this much needed skill. Also, computer lab with the best in modern computer equipment is available for students to access internet and other computer software’s.
