Marine Engine Room Simulator involves simulation with the

support of main engine and auxiliary systems in the engine room. The

machines and systems that have been simulated are main engine, diesel

generators, boiler, evaporators, heat exchangers, purifiers, steering gear,

pumps, compressors, valves and any other related parts.

The operating condition of machines and systems in the simulation is

exactly the same with the real ones. Therefore, with simulation method,

seafarer candidates get knowledge and skills at management level.

With in different failure scenarios that may be seen in practice in machine

and systems, main aims are to increase capabilities of the students through

operating and managing, and to raise qualified seafarers who have

teamwork skill and use technology.

The Engine Room Simulator is a full mission simulator designed to meet

the training requirements of marine engineers and plant operators from

basic to advanced level with special reference to the requirements of

Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW),

International Safety Management (ISM) Code and International Maritime

Organization (IMO) Model Course 2.07. (DNV, 2000)

In this study, importance of applied Engine Room Simulator education,

purpose and capabilities of Engine Room Simulator and knowledge and

skills of future seafarers who have teamwork skill and use technology are
