Marine engines are heat engines used for converting heat, which is generated by burning fuel, into useful work, i.e. developing thermal energy and transforming it into mechanical energy. The engines used onboard ships are internal combustion engines (a type), in which, the combustion of fuel takes place inside the engine cylinder and the heat is generated post the combustion process. This course helps you understand the basic concept from which the functioning of a marine engine is drawn, different terminology associated with the marine engine system and also focuses on types of marine engines and propulsion systems used onboard ships  

Take this to-the-point course to understand the basics of Marine Diesel Engines used on board ships.
