Scott’s Answer

The demand for nuclear engineers will only increase over time. Fans of renewable energy are not big fans of nuclear energy, but it something that will be necessary to meet the energy demands of the future. If you are interested in nuclear engineering I would say that you ought to pursue it.

Hi Matt,

This is a super question. All Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers are in high demand and having a background in engineering will open up many careers to you. I would be very interested to know why you are interested in this specific career - was it something you saw in the news or read about. I would definitely read as much as you can about any career in order to see what opportunities are out there and what it takes to become a nuclear engineer. Start by checking out these links related to nuclear engineering included below.

IEEE is a great organization so definitely start reading their articles, there is one included here. If IEEE has any events or activities in your area check these out - you might meet some mentors there.

Then check out these other links to help you identify the classes and skills you will need to pursue this career.
There are civilian and military opportunities which might be interesting to you.

One thing that is not here but you might consider are other careers which require a knowledge of nuclear chemistry such as nuclear medicine. You could consider volunteering at a hospital in radiology or in a lab. You might be able to get an internship or a tour of a nuclear facility near you.
