So what DO Nukees do for a living?

It's not MAD science...just disappointed.

Cling to grad school, become professors/advisors, or get a job in something utterly unrelated to being a nukee. :(

Two data points:

1) Get out of grad school in the 90's, realize that you can spell "C", and get a job doing software. Next time you hand out your resume, get depressed that they skip over your masters in NukeE and instead talk about your bachelors in physics.

(my grad school apt-mate)
2) get your PHD studying fires in reactors using lots and lots of CFD, get hired as a consultant for a fire-protection firm.

Actually I just heard a report on market place

http://marketplace.publicradio.org/shows/2007/04/26/PM200704265.html

While it was true that there was nothing for nukees to do for a long time. There's been a resurgence in nuclear power and a shortage of nukees. Hence the grads get their pick of jobs in the current job market.

I don't think someone can make a living at that.
