Hello I’m currently working on a nuclear engineering major with a minor in business administration. I absolutely love what I am learning about. There is nothing more I'd rather be doing; I’ve been passionate about nuclear energy from a young age. That being said, I’m a little stressed about where I am going to end up once I’m done with grad school. All the places I’ve looked at that hire nuclear engineers tend to be somewhat in the middle of nowhere. I’m thinking places like Idaho national labs, Los Alamos, Y12, Pantex, Hanford or pretty much any utility. The labs and power generation stations alike all seem to be away from large urban centers. Something that is important to me is living in a large urban center. I love the culture and variety of experiences a big city has to offer. Considering this, I’m starting to worry that I am going to be stuck living in some rural area due to my career choice. I know some of those places have small cities nearby – for example I’ve been to TriCities/Hanford already, but that is still not very acceptable to me. Is this something where I am just going to have to suck it up and live somewhere that makes me unhappy? Or perhaps is there something I am missing here? Also, I am approaching this with the mindset that nuclear engineers work for either DOE labs, the navy, or power utilities. Are there other good jobs for nuclear engineers that I am missing here?
