Serving in the US Navy as a Machinist Mate on a Submarine is a mechanically focused field.

You will work alongside other Machinist Mate fellow crewmembers to perform preventative maintenance and testing, and adjustments on most of the mechanical systems on board submarine. This is a specialty that is closed to women, and requires a background check and clearance. You cannot have any history of drug abuse, and you have to type 40 words a minute. You cannot have any felony or misdemeanor conviction other than a minor traffic offense. You receive training through Navy technical school and submarine basic enlisted school training.
