edited March 2011 in Engineering Majors
ive decided to go to university of michigan college of engineering 2015.
is nuclear engineering still a good major, considering recent events in Japan? of course, i might change my mind anyway just because im a college student over the next four years...

the real question is, how are job opportunities for nuclear engineering as opposed to something more common, such as EE or mechanical engineering?

    UC Berkeley's career survey has very little data on nuclear engineering graduates, probably because there are so few. Most recent data was for 2008 graduates. Note that UC Berkeley has officially supported double majors of chemical, electrical, materials, and mechanical engineering with nuclear engineering, so it is possible that some of the graduates are double majors who got jobs or went to graduate school relating more to their other major.
