This slide will need to be updated yearly for accurate numbers.
Naval Reactors (NR) is an umbrella term for the U.S. government office that has comprehensive responsibility for the continued safe and reliable operation of the United States Navys Nuclear Propulsion program. A single entity, it has authority and reporting responsibilities within both the DON and the DOE.Key Points
Job DescriptionFrom its location at the Navy Yard in Washington D.C., Naval Reactors (NR) has cradle-to-grave responsibility for all shipboard nuclear power plants, shore-based prototypes, and nuclear propulsion support facilities for Americas Navy. The wide array of technical areas involved in the Naval Nuclear Propulsion program include:Reactor and fluid systems design Reactor physics Materials development Component design such as steam generators, pumps and valves Instrumentation and control of reactor, steam and electric plants Testing and quality control Shielding Chemistry and radiological controls Working out of NR headquarters, there are approximately 250 engineers who technically manage the various areas of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion program. These are some of the brightest minds the Navy has to offer. Their intelligence, backgrounds and comprehensive training provide them with extensive knowledge of all aspects of nuclear propulsion, as well as the flexibility to move into other technical areas involved in nuclear propulsion work.
Specific ResponsibilitiesAll Engineers selected for NR assignment are at the top of their class, making up a workforce consisting of the best and brightest technical experts in the country. Even as junior level Nuclear Officers, Naval Reactors Engineers assume responsibility for key technical work in a variety of state-of-the-art facilities, including:Two Department of Energy laboratories Two nuclear prototype/training sites Nearly 100 nuclear-powered ships and submarines Six shipyards More than 1,000 firms that support the Naval Reactors Program As a Naval Reactors Engineer in the rapid-paced nuclear propulsion field, you will typically be in charge of several projects at once. Taking the lead in anything from designing nuclear reactors to developing refueling procedures to decommissioning of nuclear propulsion plants. Whatever the specific duties, its hands-on experience on a level beyond what youll typically find in the private sector.
Work EnvironmentLike the nuclear propulsion field itself, the working environment at Naval Reactors is both challenging and rewarding. Preliminary training and eventual staff assignments center around the NR headquarters in D.C. where youll assume key responsibilities and have the chance to collaborate with the ultimate think tank of nuclear engineers. The process leading up to that will take you from earning a post-graduate level education in academic settings to training on prototype units.Beyond that, you may travel to any of the facilities involved in the program including site visits to the nuclear-powered vessels to observe and inspect operations firsthand. The opportunity to work among industry leaders, in a primarily civilian-like environment, without having to wear a uniform every day can be appealing to the professionals in this community. Far more satisfying is the relevance of the work that goes on here, in and out of uniform, and the kind of unrivaled experience it offers. Whatever your duties, wherever they take you, its important to note that much of the work is highly classified and demands the utmost discretion.
Training and AdvancementUpon graduation from college, the formal training process of becoming an Officer in the Naval Nuclear Propulsion program is officially underway. For those pursuing a Naval Reactors Engineer position, the first step is Officer Development School (ODS) a five-week course in Newport, Rhode Island, that provides a comprehensive and intense introduction to the responsibilities of being a Navy Staff Corps Officer.Upon completion of ODS, newly commissioned Officers move on to receive the advanced training that is at the core of Navy Nuclear Propulsion. Naval Reactors Engineers can expect to spend the next five years overseeing all the shipboard nuclear power plants, shore-based prototypes and nuclear propulsion support facilities in the Navy. The advanced training process they undergo prepares them to join some of the best and brightest technical experts in the country.Naval Reactors Headquarters (NR) Preliminary TrainingOfficers have an initial assignment of approximately four to five months receiving preliminary training at the Naval Reactors Headquarters in Washington, D.C. This is followed by approximately two weeks spent gaining a working background at one of the Navys land-based prototypes in either Charleston, South Carolina, or Albany, New York.Naval Reactors Training Program (NRTP)The next step involves the six-month process of earning a postgraduate-level education in nuclear engineering through the Bettis Reactor Engineering School at the Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.Naval Reactors Headquarters (NR) Staff AssignmentFollowing Naval Reactors Training, Naval Reactors Engineers are then assigned a Nuclear Engineer position with the group responsible for managing all technical aspects of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion program planning, approving and confirming the design, operation and maintenance of nearly 100 nuclear reactors. Engineers start in a junior role under a supervisor and rapidly advance to take on increasingly more responsibilities.Key Points:

Job DescriptionAtomic physics. Thermodynamics. Integral calculus. Some students live for this kind of challenging subject matter. And among them are those rare few who find that teaching the material can be even more fulfilling than studying it. In a sense, their ability to apply what they learn is magnified through the many individuals they go on to inspire.Todays Naval Nuclear Power School Instructors train the future Navy nuclear community through a technologically advanced curriculum that is taught with a sole purpose in mind: to prepare Navy Sailors and Officers for their work in the fast-paced, competitive nuclear power field.
Specific ResponsibilitiesSpecifically, Naval Nuclear Power School is a 24-week course in science and technology, designed to provide theoretical background knowledge of nuclear power. Naval Nuclear Power Instructors provide detailed knowledge of how to work the key aspects of a pressurized-water Navy nuclear power plant, which include:Reactor core nuclear principles Heat transfer and fluid systems Plant chemistry and materials Mechanical and electrical systems Radiological control For years, the Naval Nuclear Power School has been widely regarded as one of the most difficult academic programs in the country. In an instructor role, you will be at the heart of a world-class program and a legacy of excellence. Earning credentials and satisfaction that are impressive even by the standards of the most dedicated educators.
Work EnvironmentLike the nuclear propulsion field itself, the working environment at Naval Nuclear Power School (NNPS) in Charleston, South Carolina, is both challenging and rewarding. Much of your work will take place in an academic setting. You will study the same curriculum that you eventually teach, and facilitate the same collaborative learning environment that you first experienced in your own training.Typically, there is one instructor per subject on duty each academic night, allowing students requiring additional assistance on their homework or studies to call upon you for mentoring. It is also important to note that much of the curriculum is highly classified and demands the utmost discretion.Training and AdvancementUpon graduation from college, the formal training process of becoming an Officer in the Naval Nuclear Propulsion program is officially underway. For those pursuing a Naval Reactors Engineer position, the first step is Officer Development School (ODS) a five-week course in Newport, Rhode Island, that provides a comprehensive and intense introduction to the responsibilities of being a Navy Staff Corps Officer.Upon completion of ODS, newly commissioned Officers move on to receive the advanced training that is at the core of Navy Nuclear Propulsion. Naval Nuclear Power School Instructors can expect to spend the next four years teaching future nuclear-trained Officers and Enlisted personnel the theory and fundamentals behind the design and operation of Navy nuclear propulsion plants, after undergoing the same advanced curriculum and training that they will expertly instruct.Naval Nuclear Power School (NNPS)Through Naval Nuclear Power Training Command (NNPTC), Officers attend Nuke Power School in Charleston, South Carolina.

Job Description (Submariner)Submarines are the cornerstone of the Navys conflict avoidance and resolution, and naturally, the Officers who man these ships are held to the highest of standards and have extraordinary roles and responsibilities. Only a select group of disciplined and committed Officers are given the opportunity to lead departments up to an entire crew, commanding some of the most technologically advanced equipment in the world.Initial time down this career path is spent developing the essential foundation of advanced nuclear training. After mastering the engineering spaces and the theories behind nuclear power comes the process of earning qualification as a Submarine Officer on nuclear-powered submarines. The time spent on board is devoted to overseeing the day-to-day operations, managing everything from communications and navigation to armament capabilities and the tactical deployment of the submarine.Specific Responsibilities (Submariner)Submarine Officers ensure that all systems run smoothly. That means they could be in charge of any of the following:Operating a nuclear reactor and nuclear propulsion system Maintaining onboard weapons systems Managing atmosphere control and fire control Driving the vessel and charting its position Operating communications and intelligence equipment Whether on a covert, classified mission or a typical day of operation, as a Submarine Officer youll gain valuable lifelong experiences, advanced nuclear training and high-level responsibility from day one.Work Environment (Submariner)Submarine Officers are exposed to a variety of different work environments from academic settings to training on prototype units to eventual sea tours and shore assignments. The time spent on submarines involves deployments of a few to several months at a time, requiring the obvious adjustment to life on a space-limited submarine. Here, however, you will find technology, surroundings and experience that rate among the most unique and impressive in the Navy today.Once fully qualified, members may go on to hold positions that involve instructing, advising, consulting, recruiting or even commanding a submarine. And whatever your duties, wherever they take you, its important to note that much of the work is highly classified and demands the utmost discretion.
Job Description (Surface / Target)Because of their potential to carry so much of the Navys capabilities forward, aircraft carriers are at the core of ongoing missions as are the Officers who head up the various departments on board. The extensive training process in place prepares a select group of Officers to harness the power of these icons of the Navy Fleet. Some will even achieve the goal of commanding a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier.Initial time down this career path is spent gaining the background to earn qualification as a Surface Warfare Officer on conventionally powered ships. Then comes the advanced nuclear training. After mastering the engineering spaces and the theories behind nuclear power, Nuclear Surface Warfare Officers begin overseeing the day-to-day operations of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, managing everything from communications and navigation to armament capabilities and the tactical deployment of these massive vessels.Specific Responsibilities (Surface / Target)Nuclear Surface Warfare Officers are in charge of numerous shipboard operations and activities, from the engineering plant to the bridge.
