Transcript of Nuclear Engineering

Nuclear engineers get paid from $90,000 to $150,000 or more per year.
Nuclear Engineering
What Do They Do?
They provide future electrical energy systems, such as advanced fission and fusion reactors, needed not only by the U.S. but also by developing nations for economic and security growth.
Where Do They Work
What Salary
Do They Earn
Where Do They Study Nuclear Engineering?
The Manhattan Project
J. Robert Oppenheimer
Nuclear engineers typically work in an office; however,
their work setting varies with the industry in which they are employed.
Born April 22, 1904 in NYC
Ph.D at age of 22
Theoretical Physicist
"Father of the atomic bomb"
Helped create the first atomic bomb
Top Secret project by the United States to research atomic energy

Where will Nuclear Engineering jobs be in the future?
Nuclear Engineering has a bright furure. Alternative sources of energy, besides hydrocarbon energy, are extremely sought out for. Therefore, Nuclear Engineering has a bright future, based on the idea that Nuclear Fission and Nuclear Fusion will be continually researched.
Enrico Fermi
Nuclear Physicist
Contributed to new understanding of Elementary Particles (Fermions under Fermi-Dirac Statistics)
Contributed to understanding of Nuclear Fission
Contributed to Manhattan Projects
"Father of the Atomic Bomb"
Is The BOMB!
Experimental Physicist
