Marine Engineering Submariner

#1
I know this will sound like a newbish question. Today I was at my AFCO and we were going over what the best option for me was, and we decided Marine Engineering Submariner was best. He mentioned to me that I would end up working with the nuclear reactor and such. He did mention nuclear to me a good few times. I am aware I should have listened more intently, but I will ask here. Does working with nuclear happen to all marine engineers, or is it a further specisalition?

All of Britains submarines are powered by nuclear reactors. As an ETME on board one of these vessels you will be involved in some capacity with the safe running of this power source and it's associated equipment. It's what ETME's do on submarines. It's not a specialisation. It's normal.

There are no nuclear reactors on our ships though....yet.
