As a cadet, you’ll work day shifts with your department and at times support watchkeeping in the engine room. On a day shift, you will be involved in anything from stripping an engine and inspecting components, to following the path of water, oil, or steam through the ship – or ‘tracing them out’ as it’s known on board. You’ll be working with large machinery and safety is critical. The exposure you get to the ship’s systems will be down to the onboard senior management team and your hunger to learn.
