Nuclear Engineers are People Too

Mechanical. Electrical. Nuclear. Civil. It takes many kinds of engineers to operate Duke Energy’s nuclear plants. While the majority of engineers that support our nuclear fleet are not nuclear engineers, these professionals fill a unique role in the electric utility industry. And, they are sometimes misunderstood.

In honor of National Engineers Week, we asked a few of our employees what misconceptions people have about nuclear engineers. Hear what they wish people knew about their job.
