Nuclear Engineers Working in Plasma or Ion Propulsion

  1. Aug 26, 2012 #1
    Hello. I am wondering what the job field is like for nuclear engineers that aspire to work in plasma research and implementation or things like ion propulsion, etc. I do not want to work in a plant.

    Thank you.

    You don't have to work at a power plant... Assuming you're a student, try doing an internship at a national lab like LANL or ORNL, or contact physics or mechanical engineering professors at your university to see if there's research you're interested in.
