Hi there,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've been wondering for some time what the nuclear engineer job exactly looks like.

I am particulary interested in one question: is there a place in the field of nuclear engineering for guys who would rather do the math and equations than build anything? Are there jobs for power engineers that require little or no practical work at all (and by practical I mean involving, e.g., designing and building stuff as opposed to, e.g., proposing theoretical models)?

Hope you won't find the question silly; I would be very grateful for any answers.
