Default Which Nuclear Rating does what?

I'm somewhat confused as to which rating does what. I know MM (Machinist's Mate) is essentially maintenance and repair. But what's the difference between EM (Electrician's Mate) and ET (Electronics Technician). I would personally like to shoot for whichever has control over operation but I don't want to mistakenly go for the wrong thing. Any help would be appreciated.

EMs deal with motors and generators. ETs deal with the circuit card level troubleshooting and replacement.

If giong nuke, remember this..you generally do not get to pick which rate in the nuke pipeline...you can request one, and sometimes you get it, many times it is picked for you as to what is open and available. This will be done while you are at boot.

Thank you all! It appears I should try to shoot for ET if possible, it seems I would do best at that. I guess I need to bust my hump to be the best of the best so I get a decent shot at choosing it. (openings permitting).

MM do you like getting your hands dirty and Mario from super smash brothers? Glorified nuclear plummers. Those little grease monkeys are the best. To a mechanic, everything is a hammer. A-school is shorter, woo hoo! Have a chance of being picked up ELT if you like chemistry.

EM gods chosen rate. We make the power, we are the power. If you like high voltage fueled life and a middle of the road attitude. EM is for you, hands on like a MM, technical like an ET.

ET. Homer Simpson meets Gandolf. Magical in the electrity department. Reactor operator by day, socially awkward by night. If you want to control a reactor, ET is the way.

You fill out your choices, at bootcamp. The powers that be, return them shortly. I know most people get what they want. If you don't, you can't switch but you'll learn to love your rate quickly. You too can start calling the other rates derogatory names in no time.
