NUC-490 Nuclear Technology Assessment/Career Planning

Nuclear Technology Assessment/Career Planning is an in-depth, student-centered activity that requires the integration of current nuclear employment, nuclear technology self-assessment resulting in the development of a comprehensive vitae, practical career planning and interviewing strategies, and applied advanced mathematics applications to nuclear engineering technology situations. Students will research real-world nuclear employment and participate in career focused activities that includes building a professional resume and knowing how to interview successfully. This includes seeking a job, a promotion, and/or moving to a new skill area.
