ETO as a career ?


0

Being an Electronics and telecommunication engineer, i found that the best way for me join merchant navy was to do an ETO course (@Jahajee - this website suggests me that DNS is only option my qualification. why so?).
So i wanted advice from you all regarding ETO as a career ?
Can I advance to chief engineer from Electrical Officer ?
What are onshore job opportunities after I stop sailing ?

I read two conflicting opinions about ETO on internet-
first was that ETO is same as radio officer and this post is now slowly being removed i.e deck side is trained to this work. so career prospects as gloomy.
other was that -ETO is not just a radio officer, now since most vessels rely heavily on electronics and communication, the need for an ETO (as a specialist on vessel)is rising.
now which of the above is true ?
