Profiles of Nuclear Engineers - Overview PowerPoint


Nuclear engineers research and develop the processes, instruments, and systems used to derive benefits from nuclear energy and radiation. They design, develop, monitor, and operate nuclear plants to generate power. They may work on the nuclear fuel cycle -- the production, handling, and use of nuclear fuel and the safe disposal of waste produced by the generation of nuclear energy -- or on the development of fusion energy.

Some specialize in the development of nuclear power sources for naval vessels or spacecraft; others find industrial and medical uses for radioactive materials -- for example, in equipment used to diagnose and treat medical problems.
