Question:
What should I study to become a nuclear engineer?



Replies:
Basically, to become a nuclear engineer you must major in nuclear engineer- ing in college. This, of course, requires a basic background in chemistry, physics, materials, etc. which is studied in your first years in college. If you are not yet in college I would recommend trying to finish up high school as strongly as possible to ensure your acceptance in to a quality college.
