Tolani Maritime Institute - TMI
India has a long standing tradition of producing high quality officers that serve the world's merchant marine fleet. To a large extent this was made possible by the Indian government's visionary initiative of establishing a few excellent maritime training institutes immediately after independence. In recent years India's position of leadership has been significantly weakened by an inability to keep pace with the growth in demand in terms of numbers as well as technological sophistication. Inadequate allocation of resources for maritime training from the government and lack of a suitable environment to facilitate private investment led to this decline. However, by the mid 1990's the government had made the necessary changes to enable private initiatives in maritime training. The Tolani Group, which has a long tradition of establishing and managing institutions of higher learning, was preparing during 1995-1997 to found a new campus-based institute that would mature into a university. As the Tolani Group's primary business is ship owning and ship management, it was acutely aware of the need for India to produce increasing numbers of well educated marine officers. Hence it was decided in late 1997 that the group's new educational initiative should take the form of a modern, purpose built maritime institute. The first degree program students were accepted in August 1998 and accommodated in temporary facilities until the new 100 acre campus was made operational in late 2000.

Tolani Maritime Institute Placements
The innovative Internship component of a TMI degree programme, apart from serving as a training element, is a key factor for the effective placement of graduates. This initiative provides the opportunity for an in-depth evaluation of a student by a potential employer and a jump start to employer specific training. TMI's experience has been that almost all students are absorbed by the same companies that provided them with their internship opportunity. A small number of marine engineering students preparing for careers as shipboard engineers intern with shore based organisations that have engineering facilities similar to onboard systems or that produce major engine room equipment for ships. While these same organisations have shown tremendous interest in recruiting their TMI interns after graduation, ship managers and ship owners greatly value the in depth knowledge gained by these interns and have recruited them for shipboard positions. The success and efficacy of the Internship Programme is in no small measure due to the fact that TMI students are particularly well prepared to be effective workers during the internship period and that the learning process during internship is guided by a structured programme. Over the years, more than 90% of TMI graduates have succesfully secured positions in reputed shipping companies before their graduation day. Recruiting companies recognise that TMI students have undergone an intense four-year curriculum that has converted bright students into qualified marine officers. TMI graduates are able to add immense value to any organisation, having been trained to take on job responsibilities from the very first day. Our innovative Internship-cum-Placements programme puts our graduates a step ahead of the rest and we have found that most students are absorbed by the same companies that provided them with their internship opportunity.
The TMI campus is built in a rural area with neither the benefits of an urban infrastructure nor the constraints of the cityscape. This made it possible for the TMI campus to be purpose built with infrastructural facilities that could be leveraged for the learning experience.
Pleasant and healthy environment
It is the firm belief of the management that a pleasant and healthy environment is an excellent catalyst for learning and therefore no efforts have been spared in developing an aesthetic campus with every reasonable convenience. It starts with the network of wide tree-lined roads and architectural design that blends comfortably with the landscape. This is supplemented with the waterscape of cooling ponds and a lake.
Campus Engineering System
The primary components of the campus engineering system include:
- Power plant
- Modern vapour absorption chiller
- Water treatment plant
- Effluent treatment plant
A seven ton per hour boiler capable of burning agro waste powers a steam turbine to produce electricity. A pair of diesel driven generators provides a backup to this primary source of electric power.
Vapour absorption chiller
The low pressure exhausted steam from the turbine is then used to power an environment friendly vapour absorption chiller to deliver chilled water to air conditioning units installed for climate control of the academic facilities.
Water Treatment Plant
The water treatment plant provides safe drinking water at every tap on the campus. A high level of maintenance attention and regular testing ensure the quality of the water.
Effluent treatment plant
The hundreds of campus residents generate a substantial quantity of effluent everyday. This is processed in a treatment plant that yields water safe for use in watering of the lawns and plants. The remaining solid waste is used as fertilizer.
Protection of the Environment
Conservation of resources and protection of the environment is a central theme in the design of this campus. In addition to the proactive elements incorporated into the design of the engineering systems the boiler exhaust is processed through an electrostatic precipitator to minimize air pollution.
The campus is fully wired for high performance networking in all forms. High-speed data communications take place over a fully switched network based on an optical fibre backbone with gigabyte bandwidth. Campus residents can freely access the Institute's server resources as well as the Internet from almost anywhere on the campus.
A modern digital PABX is the hub of an extensive voice network that provides direct access for off campus calls, including international calls.
All users can also take advantage of the integrated voice mail system that ensures efficient communications for persons with a demanding schedule on the widespread campus.
