Navy Engineering Careers
Taking your place in one of the world’s premier engineering programs. Securing access to postgraduate training that’s so advanced, its curriculum is classified. Overseeing exciting, important and unique construction projects around the globe. If you’re looking to do groundbreaking work in the field of engineering, check out the many engineering careers available to you in the Navy.
- Billions of dollars are spent each year on construction projects that support the Navy’s high-tech Fleet of ships, aircraft, equipment and personnel. And at the center of these investments is a talented group of engineers who help to ensure the success of each initiative.
Naval Architect/Marine Engineer
- Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering are fields of engineering, like electrical, civil or mechanical engineering, that specialize in marine vessels. This includes disciplines related to design and analysis of floating vessels, including hull form, arrangement, stability, strength, resistance, propulsion, structural design and so on.
- Electrical Engineers are leaders in the technologically advanced Navy and Marine Corps. They use their understanding of the fundamentals of electrical and computer engineering to help operate and manage the advanced electronics systems and subsystems present on some of the world’s most advanced ships, submarines and aircraft.
Fire Control Technician
- Fire Control Technicians (FT) operate, test and maintain submarine combat control systems. They participate in weapons handling functions and operate and maintain non-tactical computer systems and peripherals.
- Electronics Technicians (ET/RF and ET/NAV) focus on installing, administering and maintaining onboard communications and navigations systems. At sea and ashore, you could be serving with and be repairing systems and equipment on Navy aircraft, submarines, surface ships and landing craft at bases, ports of call, critical disaster areas and development areas.
Submarine Electronics Technician
- Reading sonar to track enemy targets on a Navy submarine. Manning submarine weapon systems. Navigating the deepest reaches of the oceans. Those who work in Submarine Electronics do some of the most classified and high-tech work in the world.
- As a Navy Cryptology Technician, your ability to speak and understand world languages will take center stage. Whether via radio, telephone or computer, you will be specially trained to decipher and analyze pertinent foreign information in every form of communication imaginable.
- Mechanical Engineers design state-of-the-art vehicles (sea, air or land) and the engines that propel them. They create prosthetic devices for wounded servicemembers. They seek to harness clean, renewable energy sources, such as wind, water and solar power. They make materials for armor and aircraft lighter and stronger – and our daily lives safer in countless ways.
- Aerospace Engineers test and evaluate new aircraft, weapons systems and weapons in various stages of development. They apply their knowledge of aerodynamics, structures, propulsion and flight vehicle performance to hands-on aspects of conceiving, designing, building and operating flight vehicles.
