39: Nuclear Engineer Focused On Nuclear Power Plants – Drew Nigh

Drew Nigh, (if you have questions for Drew, please connect with him on linked in) earned a bachelor and masters degree in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is currently a Risk Management Engineer at Jensen Hughes.

Drew focused on the power side,nuclear reactor design which has a heavy mechanical focus, and some other areas that you can pursue with nuclear engineering are medical applications as well as the biological side looking at the affects of radiation on the body.

He notes that you don’t have to be too concerned about what exactly you are going to school for, you can always adjust and even transfer schools.

Some advice is to just say thank you for any feedback and look at the feedback in a positive way.

The book he’s currently enjoying is “Think Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman.
