Exclamation DSTA vs STE

Hi all,

Recently, I have been awarded both DSTA and STE local scholarships.
Even though both organisations may seem similar, they are quite drastically different in terms of roles and responsibilities. A DSTA engineer's role mainly revolves around project management while an STE engineer's role consists of technical and engineering design work.

Personally, I would accept STE scholarship as I really enjoy what they are doing. However, a number of my friends encouraged me to accept DSTA scholarship as it has a higher starting pay and better environment/culture as compared to STE.

Really hope any insiders/veterans can shed some light.

You should have applied for DSO scholarships. That will get you your STE job at DSTA pay.

Anyway, i advise you to take up the DSTA scholarship. People "downgrade" from DSTA to STE and "upgrade" from STE to DSTA. Your STE job consist of lesser engineering and design that you were led to believe. After a couple of years, and especially being a scholar, you will be pushed towards project management anyway.
