The nuclear sector in Germany offers secure and attractive jobs with many promising perspectives for young people in Germany. This has been pointed out by the German Atomic Forum (DAtF). The Nuclear Engineering Competence Alliance - a network of large research facilities and universities - presumes that the number of job vacancies in nuclear engineering in this country may rise to have up to four digits in the coming years. The highest demand will in particular be for students now opting for a course in the nuclear field or in related disciplines such as physics, chemistry or process engineering.
The German Atomic Forum - together with such renowned partners as the German Physics Society, the Max-Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of National Research Centres and the VDI Energy Technology Society - is taking this as an opportunity to organise a colloquium for students under the motto "Career Prospects in Nuclear Engineering". This event will take place in Karlsruhe between September 26 and 29, 2002. The aim is to enable students from the relevant universities from all over Germany - especially those specialising in engineering and physics - to gain an insight into the domain of nuclear engineering and the associated career opportunities. The participants will also be able to receive first-hand information from representatives of nuclear engineering companies and research institutions about how to enter the profession and about possible career opportunities and can thus establish first important contacts with potential future employers. The four-day colloquium will be rounded off by a joint visit to a nuclear power plant and a programme of attractive social events.
