Engineer Officer Entry Requirement

Hands on technical work, as the others point out, is the responsibility of the technicians. Technical work with some managerial activity describes a Petty Officer or Chief Petty Officer level of responsibility. I'd have to check with the AIB to confirm if there was an upper age limit for the DTUS scheme.

Sorry to revive an old thread. What are the chances of the RN accepting someone with a non-accredited science degree for AE, WE or ME? Is there any precedence for this? Are there other ways of satisfying the CEng/IEng requirements than having an accredited degree?

I know the RN is short of engineers, the job sounds fascinating and I wish I'd done an engineering degree. Mine is a BSc in Biochemistry so the closest I've gotten is genetic engineering :D anyone able to shed any light on this? @Ninja_Stoker perhaps?

My understanding is it is unlikely, but worth an ask via your AFCO.

Having said that, if you.have Level 3 Engineering qualifications and maths, English & Science amongst your GCSEs, an accelerated apprentice starts on £31,100, an Engineering Officer on £25,000 ish. You can apply for Engineering Officer from within the service, if suitable, without any degree, so if young enough, it's worth a look at: http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/careers...elerated-apprentice-scheme-marine-engineering

Likewise STEM qualifications at A Level with 160 ucas points, under age 34, for the Submariner Undergrad Apprentice Schemes (UGAS). Start pay £31,100. http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/careers...undergraduate-apprenticeship-scheme-ugas-mesm

If you join as a rating on either scheme you get paid more than an Officer. Why wouldn't ya?

Failing that one presumes you have had a look at Med Tech, Bio Med scientist which has fairly rapid advancement and correspondingly, a similarly decent wage after initial training http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/careers...s/services/surface-fleet/biomedical-scientist
