Comms or engineering?

Lingo

Newbie
What are everyone's opinions on the better department as career choice, Communications or Engineering/Motorman? Pros and cons of each? Both appeal with problem solving and being technical, just one is computer and networks the other is engine rooms and everything mechanical. Rather hear from the horses mouth on prospective of these roles?

Unless one has experienced both in the same timeframe, one can really only bring ones personal prejudices to the debate.

Every Comms Officer is a RTO (Rating to Officer) and (last I heard) topped out at 2/O.

There’s at least one Captain(E) who began as a Motorman.
