Nuclear engineers are in charge of successfully completing nuclear engineering tasks for their organization. They develop and execute complex model interactions, use innovative computational methods to predict effects, and assess risks, as well as static and dynamic events. They must have advanced knowledge of nuclear engineering principles and their proper use while following strict safety laws when dealing with dangerous substances and materials. Nuclear engineers apply nuclear reactor technologies that make processes faster, manage technical performance and constraints, monitor core application, test new nuclear methodologies, and use their expertise for process optimizations, flow, and subsequent evaluation.
Nuclear Engineer Tasks
Performs experiments to provide information on material usage and waste disposal.
May monitor nuclear facilities to identify operation practices to ensure safety regulations are being followed.
Studies release, control and utilization of nuclear energy including accidents.
Designs and develops equipment, instruments, and control mechanisms.
