Careers in the Nuclear Industry

Here are a few resources for students interested in a career in the nuclear energy sector.  These materials may also be useful in preparing your students for a visit by someone who works in this industry as well.

The March 2009 issue of Career Currents focuses on professionals working in the field of nuclear energy. This newsletter from the NEED Project  provides educators and students with resources to introduce energy careers, with each issue focused on a different energy sector.

The Nuclear Energy Institute also provides career information on its website as well as a publication about careers that is available for download.

The American Nuclear Society has a web page devoted to careers in the field of nuclear engineering including a student brochure.

The US Navy’s website also has a web page devoted to the jobs and careers in nuclear energy available with the US Navy.  The US Navy operates  nuclear-powered submarines and aircraft carriers and so must have trained Naval Reactor Engineers and Operators as well as instructors.
