Can I get a nuclear-related job after getting a degree in Chemical Engineering?
I'm applying for universities and all I know is that I want to work in the nuclear industry. Besides doing a nuclear engineering program, can I get a chemical engineering degree at undergraduate level and still venture into the nuclear field?

I did, so I know it's possible. Not just nuclear power plants, but fuel rod manufacturing, reprocessing (if you're not in the US where it is illegal!), waste management, design, etc. They all hire and use ChEs.
