Nuclear Engineering Major

US Nuclear Industry Council

This summer I worked for the U.S. Nuclear Industry Council (USNIC), a non-profit, member-funded, business consortium that serves as the interface between the nuclear industry, Capitol Hill, and the White House. Throughout the summer I attended nuclear and energy-related hearings on the Hill, wrote summaries for USNIC member companies, and assisted the planning of a forum on advanced nuclear reactors that brought together industry leaders, policymakers, and venture capitalists. I also wrote a report summarizing several advanced nuclear technologies and their benefits, which will be presented to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in the fall. I had the privilege of attending many cool events at the Japanese Embassy, on Capitol Hill, and the swearing in of the new Secretary of Energy on Nuclear Energy. I attended several networking events where I made many valuable connections in the nuclear industry. Overall, I gained a better understanding of the social challenges the nuclear industry faces, and several careers paths I could follow to help overcome them.
