ABOUT

Every successful engineering career needs a solid foundation, and that’s exactly what you’ll get. Do your

job right, and you’ll build structures that will last for years to come—and a career that will take you

wherever you want to go.

ENGINEERING JOBS IN THE NAVY

HULL MAINTENANCE TECHNICIAN

When things break on a Navy ship, duct tape won’t cut it. Hull Maintenance Technicians are the

experienced welders and metal workers who can forge or fabricate just about anything a ship

needs to repair everything from hull breaches to broken pipes—welding, brazing, plumbing,

sheet metal, wood work…the list goes on.

ELECTRICIAN’S MATE

Whether you’re installing the latest electrical panels in the cockpit or troubleshooting the

electric breakers on a submarine, you are responsible for keeping the power flowing. If you’re

fascinated by complex circuits and schematics, a career as an EM might be your perfect match.

GAS TURBINE SYSTEMS TECHNICIAN - ELECTRICAL

Few engines in the world are as powerful as a gas-turbine system on a Navy warship. We’ll teach

you everything you need to know, from operating electrical plants to repairing wiring and

circuitry. The strongest engines in the world need Sailors with the strength and skills to support

them.

GAS TURBINE SYSTEMS TECHNICIAN – MECHANICAL

If you like working with your hands, the Navy has plenty of jobs that fit the bill. But not all of

them get to operate one of the world’s most powerful engines. To do that, you need to be a Gas

Turbine Systems Technician - Mechanical. In addition to operating the turbines and propulsion

equipment that keep the ship moving, you’ll also develop broad knowledge of fuel systems,

steam systems and other systems related to propulsion.

MACHINIST’S MATE

Navy ships are constantly crossing the ocean, traveling hundreds of thousands of miles to the

shores of every continent on Earth. As a Machinist’s Mate, you help ensure your ship arrives

safely. Whether you’re repairing a steam turbine or adjusting an aircraft elevator, you can expect

to gain thorough working knowledge of all things mechanical on ships like cruisers and

destroyers.

ENGINEERING AIDE

Engineering Aides directly assist Construction Engineers in developing final construction plans.

They are responsible for performing the pre-construction prep work from blueprint planning to

land surveying that helps ensure the success of the project.

DAMAGE CONTROLMAN

Damage Controlmen are the first responders who are critical to preventing accidents. Trained in

firefighting, ship stability and chemical, radiological and biological warfare defense, these Sailors

are masters of it all. They also provide training to ensure that all Sailors are prepared for an

emergency, since all engineers are trained as first responders and attend additional training

(BECC-Basic Engineering Common Core) on the first line of defense when it comes to fires,

flooding, and CBR attacks.

PAY AND BENEFITS

From the day you start, you’ll receive:

• Competitive salary

• Potential to earn a bonus upon enlistment

• Free health insurance

• Free housing

• A retirement plan

• Paid training

• College credit

EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES

• Navy College Program and Tuition Assistance

• Post-9/11 GI Bill, up to 100% tuition

• Professional credentials and certifications

• College credit hours toward a bachelor’s or associate degree through the American Council on

Education

QUALIFICATIONS AND REQUIREMENTS

• U.S. citizen or equivalent

• High school graduate or equivalent

• 17 years of age or older

General qualifications may vary depending upon whether you’re currently serving, whether you’ve

served before or whether you’ve never served before.

WORK ENVIRONMENT

You’ll construct and repair a variety of structures in just about every environment imaginable. You may

work at Navy bases or ports of call around the globe, and you may be deployed to help develop or

rebuild areas affected by natural disasters.

PART-TIME OPPORTUNITIES

Serving part-time as a Navy Reserve Sailor, your duties will be carried out during your scheduled drilling

and training periods. During monthly drilling, Sailors in the Navy Reserve typically work at a location

close to their homes.

Required qualifications:

  • 17 years or older
  • Legally authorized to work in the United States
