One of NPRE's three paths of study
Making a difference
The intersection of radiation technologies and medicine, security and other basic science areas (biology, chemistry, materials science, physics,and computer science) is home for these engineers. Some turn to medical professions; others focus on developing radiation instrumentation or homeland security technology.
Careers and employers
Many graduates who concentrate in this area apply to medical school. Others find positions with companies such as GE Healthcare, Exelon Corp., or Siemens. Still others build careers in the Department of Energy or the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
