Nuclear engineering offers unique opportunities to make a difference by developing uses of nuclear materials for medical equipment, food production, and much more!

Some of the duties of a nuclear engineer are:

  • Developing nuclear power sources for naval vessels and spacecraft
  • Finding industrial and medical uses for radioactive materials for example, in equipment used to diagnose and treat medical problems
  • Designing nuclear equipment
  • Examining nuclear accidents and gathering data to design preventive measures
