Nuclear engineers help produce nuclear energy and harness its power for electricity, medical treatments, and other scientific research.
VIRTUAL JOB SHADOW
Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see what a day in the life of a Nuclear Engineer is like.
Want to know what it’s like to work in a nuclear power plant? Here’s what to do:
STEP 1 – Explore the parts of a pressurized water reactor with this simulator from the Nuclear Institute.
STEP 2 – Using the simulator, make a list of the main parts of a nuclear reactor, and what happens at each part.
STEP 3 – Turn your list into a Nuclear Engineer Checklist to help new engineers know exactly what all the parts of a nuclear reactor are, and what each part does.
STEP 4 – Share your Nuclear Engineer Checklist in the Student Showcase to build your resume!
