Nuclear engineers research and develop the processes, instruments, and systems used to derive benefits from nuclear energy and radiation, typically in an office setting.
Their day to day includes specializing in the development of nuclear equipment, such as reactor cores, radiation shield,, and associated instrumentation. This often means, that though they are typically seen in the office they may be seen in the field at a nuclear facility operations to identify any design, construction, or operation practices that violate safety regulations and laws.
Though once considered a hot job nuclear engineers have continued to decline since 2019 with utility companies opting for cheaper natural gas in power generation.
Common Nuclear Engineering Jobs include: Design Engineer, Engineer I, Nuclear Engineer, Senior Nuclear Fire Protection Engineer,
