Future of nuclear engineering?
« on: Oct 03, 2018, 01:07 »
I've read some threads saying that the nuclear engineering industry is shrinking. Does that mean becoming a nuke will be obsolete, at least for the next 20 years or so. I'm in my senior year of high school and my grades are eh, 3.1 out of 5 gpa and 26 on the act. So hopefully I can get into the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. If I do join the navy though, is there a better 'area' to join? thanks for your time.

If you're looking for job security, anything medical or computer related is a good choice. Nuclear may or may not be shrinking. There are a few companies developing new style reactors that may get built, although not in the next decade. Also, training in the nuke pipeline teaches you how to learn, so you can learn new skills fairly easily, which will help in any industry.

Go Nuclear. It seems like plants keep shutting down but theres so much more to Nuclear than a Nuclear power plant. Doe facilities are a great place to work also. If I were you i would find a school and get some kind of education related to Nuclear. Its far from dead and theres a lot of money to be made.
