Answer
Dear Mr. Ravi,
You can pursue GME, but it is an expensive curse to do, and there are not lots of job in the market for the freshers, so it is not easy to get the job after doing such an expensive course.

Even you have also completed 4 years in Mechanical engg. So now a days its better go in merchant navy, only if you have some support or jack. otherwise you will downgrade yourself in finding the job.


Thanks
