Hi Shabaz,
If you want to join as an engineer and right now you are in 10th standard, first you need to complete you 12th with good percentage and first class marks, then it will be easy to get admission in a reputed institute for Marine Engineering, which is a 4 year course.
Good companies only conduct placement service at good institutes only, obviously they hire smart and intelligent guys, focus on your 12th and keep your self update about other fields too.

And if you do B.Tech Mechanical, there is a 1 year course for Marine Engineers. But if you do Mechanical,that will work everywhere, unlike the Marine Mechanical Engineering.
Because in future, if you think to leave the field, you will have a degree which will everywhere be respected.
