Default Dsta vs dso

Hi,

Approaching my final year of studies in mech engineering and considering a career path in DSO or DSTA. Can anyone enlighten me on the difference between the 2 stat boards? I know both are closely related but can't really find any info online regarding the difference between them.

DSO is more technical and engineering....DSTA is on project management....both are serving the national defence work.

Like the others said, DSO is more technical focused. I would strongly recommend you to join DSO if possible as you really learn little transferable skills in DSTA doing project management. Do note it is also harder to enter DSO. I easily got a job at DSTA from their invitation to interview, whereas I didn't even get a reply after multiple applications to DSO.

Thanks for your insight. How is/was it like working for dsta besides the fact that the little skills obtained there are transferable to the private sectoe?

Working for DSO sounds really interesting, I would definitely keep a lookout for future job postings.

However, I heard that most fresh graduates that enter DSO are mainly from computer science. As for me, my major is mechanical engineering and I am not from the robotics/mechatronics stream, do I still have a chance of entering DSO?
