    Re: hello!

    From my pre interview research I think you can split the role into two I expect nemo has a more definitive answer

    Traditional Engine + Electrics HND route work on all types of ships except cruise Engine tasks and testing gmdss batteries etc

    Pure electro FD route cruise ships maintenance and repair of electrical generators through to fixing the lifts and disco lights

    I'm hoping to get exposure to both worlds with the Trinity scholarship, although I'm not keen on engines I think a lot of the offshore DP ship / survey ship ETO roles expect some engine knowledge
    Former TH cadet with experience of cruise ships, buoy tenders, research ships and oil tankers

          I've got a bit of previous experience, I quite enjoyed electronics at school (Design and Technology) and I did my work experience in an electrical engineering firm then I went off track and studied towards working in the finance industry, I'm now changing career back to where I should probably have worked in the first place (though the pure Electro course didn't exist then, and I'm not really into engines)
          I was the same! Despite enjoying physics at school, in particular the electrical topics, I didn't think to take it further. Now I'm back-tracking to what I probably should have done in the first place..good to know I'm not the only one!
