To see the ship-in-campus at pre sea campus with all actual Engine equipments & machinery, and the mock-up facilities, at the bank of river appear to be really commendable facilities through which the cadets are being trained. The other thing which I would also like to appreciate is the Institutes efforts for just not making the profits but also its endeavor to impart quality training to the incoming aspirants.

About

When HIMT was established in 1998 I was the Principal Officer, MMD Chennai. At that time I was also the Chairman of the Southern Academic Council (under DGS) – which was responsible for inspection and approval of all institutes, including HIMT. I’ve seen this Institute grow from strength to strength with Mr Vakil’s perseverance, diligence and devotion- to the cause of maritime training. “Today I have the previlage to visit this beautiful institute on the request of Shri. Vakil. Incidentally, I happened to be involved in approval of various courses in its initial stages as P.O. MMD Chennai. It is really unbelievable that the institute has grown from strength to strength. The premises is excellent and facilities and arrangement are of top class. This has only possible because of Shri Vakils hard work and uncompromising attitude towards quality and lastly but not least, the grace of god. To me, it is the best maritime institute in India. I wish him and the institute all the best. Keep it up.”

Having known Mr. Vakil and quite a few on the faculty, and having seen the growth of this institute from a cautious beginning to now – great achievement. Particularly impressive are the small things – good meal, course material in CD, interaction with the students on their feedback by the MD himself – this institute can only prosper. God bless.”
