To celebrate Nuclear Science Week, Duke Energy nuclear employees will host virtual career panels for high school students that focus on a different nuclear power career profile each day throughout the week.
Duke Energy’s six nuclear power plants generate 24/7 carbon-free electricity across the Carolinas, and provide more than 7,000 jobs in their communities, as well as significant economic benefits within the regions they serve.
Learn about a variety of engineering paths within nuclear power; explore how Duke Energy focuses on public and employee safety through radiation protection careers and how chemistry plays a crucial role in nuclear operation; discover the “eyes and ears” of a nuclear plant through first-hand experience from nuclear operators; and hear stories from our highly skilled maintenance employees who are mechanics, welders, electricians, instrumentation and control technicians and more.
The virtual events will begin at 10 a.m. each day, and focus on the following nuclear power career profiles throughout the week:
Monday, Oct. 19: Engineering careers
Tuesday, Oct. 20: Chemistry and radiation protection careers
Wednesday, Oct. 21: Operator careers
Thursday, Oct. 22: Maintenance careers
Register here for one, some or all career panel discussions. The event is open to high school students. A moderator will facilitate discussions, and guests will be able to ask questions. Sessions will also be recorded and made available shortly after career week ends.
