What do Young People say

The ENS NEWS team has been out and about interviewing young people who have recently received a nuclear education or attended a nuclear-related training course. They were asked the following simple questions:

Who are you currently working for?

What did you study and how has your study influenced your career choice?

What kind of additional courses and training did you do?

These bright, motivated and ambitious young professionals represent the future of the nuclear industry. Click on the photos to read what they had to say.
