    Hi, I want to be a yacht engineer. So, I'll transfer to other university which has yacht engineering. But, I can't find an information how to be a yacht engineer...
    Do I take Marine Engineering course to be a yacht engineer? But, I think Marine Engineering course teaches how to build a big ship, not yacht. I think a big ship and yacht are different.
    Please help...

    Do it as a big ship engineer, all commercial tickets are accepted on yachts, yacht tickets are not accepted on commercial ships.

    Marine Engineering Licences are not just gained through a University, you need to have practical experience and onboard training to qualify to take the exams in any country I am familiar with
