A well organised and managed team of faculties and infrastructure, the faculties here are very helpful and always motivative, even after the official working hours they are always there to clear our doubts and investing extra time on us and provided us with separate class rooms for those who wanted to stay back and study, Library facility were  good with all the necessary books
Some of the faculties i would like to address
*Capt S Somasundaram
Subjects: SOP(Stability) and BWK(ROR)
he made it very simple to understand stability by giving a very clear view of the topics and ROR he teaches in such a way that it will be forever registered in our head giving a clear view of the rules and situations we expect to be facing while at sea, my ROR was one of my strong pillar which gave me more confidence while appearing for my orals.
*Capt Anand Williams

He made chartwork fun to learn and easy to understand. He gives extra attention and help for those who need. A very affable person and easily reachable whenever stuck in some topics, after class hours he was always available to reach.
He gave a very clear view of basics which helped me alot when going ahead.
*Capt R Vasudevan

A very clear picture of understanding the cargo work in a very simplified manner
*Cdr. R. Venkatesan ( visiting faculty)
Subject: Meteorology
He gave a very deep understanding of Meteorology and spent extra time and effort on us.

I joined Massa on the 1st of December, 2015 and completed my MEO Class – II, preparatory course by the 31st of March, 2016. I started giving my MEO Class 2 exams in June, 2016. In my first attempt I cleared all my written papers and function 6 in oral examination. In my second attempt, on the 25th of August, 2016 I cleared the three remaining functions and thus, cleared Class 2.Massa and its faculties have played a major role in brushing up my basics. The flexibility of learning is an added advantage. Looking at the results Massa is delivering, I personally know a few more people getting inclined to the idea of joining Massa. I am also willing to do what is best to encourage the current students aspiring to become second engineers.

Thanks to Mr. Patro, Mr. Ravindran , Mr. Thirumalai sir and Capt. Bharadwaj . Many thanks to all of you for your blessings. I will personally thank you all at Massa .
