Nuclear Engineering -- Viable? Just a quick question. I'm considering the possibility of changing majors from aerospace to nuclear engineering, and I'm rather curious what the future for the profession looks like. Given the tendency for the public to be very shy towards nuclear power, and the fact that noone seems willing to invest in nuclear energy, is it career suicide to go that route? If I were to go into nuclear engineering, it would be to work in the power generation industry. I could possibly take a research route for fusion technology, but I'm more interested in fission generation.
