Indian Navy SSC Technical Exam



Indian Navy generally recruits people to its executive branch and sailor branch. The path to Command is through the executive Branch. Only sea going officers of the executive Branch can exercise command of ships, submarines and aircraft. Seaman Officers can specialize in gunnery & missiles, navigation and direction, anti-submarine warfare, communications, aviation, submarine, hydrography, and diving. 

Engineering Branch

Modern ships, submarines and aircraft are equpid with advanced technology, machinery and propulsion systems. The Engineer-officer is responsible for keeping all these systems serviceable. Opportunities to work in shore jobs in naval dockyards and indigenous production units also exit.

In no other career is an engineer exposed to such a wide spectrum of opportunities to keep abreast of modern development. An Engineer Officer’s career is interspersed with technical courses up to post graduation level in India/abroad. Naval Architects specialise in warship construction. 

Electrical Branch

A warship is a mini floating city with an integral power generation and distribution system. In addition, complex missile systems, underwater weapons, radars and radio communication equipment form major part of a warship’s equipment.

A majority of these are either computer-based or computer aided and incorporate the latest trends in electronics engineering. For a ship to be able to fight effectively, all this equipment must be kept working at peak efficiency. Electrical Officers have this responsibility and other challenging tasks. The navy also offers excellent opportunities for post-graduate courses in India/abroad. 

Submarine branch

These new hi-tech war machines have awesome firepower, state-of-the art weapon control systems, computer controlled machinery and a high standard of habitability. One major responsibility of the submarines in peace time is to train for war as effectively as possible in the knowledge that this will contribute to its prevention.

If you successfully complete the rigorous training, which is conducted at Visakhapatnam, you will be the proud possessor of the ‘Dolphin Badge’ and a member of a very elite arm of the Navy.
