A Career in Nuclear Engineering

Nuclear engineering is the branch of engineering concerned with the application of the breakdown of atomic nuclei and/or other sub-atomic physics, based on the principles of nuclear physics.

Though this specific branch of engineering deals with most minute substance, its scope and market covers the area which is as large as that of a destruction created by a nuclear explosion. Well, not quite literally.

Since the advent of the Nuclear Power, Nuclear Engineering, the very less talked about field, has emerged as an important discipline and world is looking towards it. The research and development in nuclear fission and fusion is growing with new efforts towards the development of nuclear reactors, nuclear power plants that can supply power to anything from a Cruise to a Spacecraft, nuclear weapons and the cleanest application: the medical field.

Nuclear engineers capture the vast energies of the disintegrating atom, harness it and put it to great use while not forgetting to develop the efficient ways to dispose off the nuclear wastes.

Pertaining to the huge demand, the students interested in going into an unusual field of engineering and having interests particularly i[​IMG]n the research & development arena, can opt for Nuclear Engineering as it is yet another good choice. All that you have to have is strong aptitude in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology as well.

Here is a Video by Quiet Agent that I found on YouTube:

Nuclear Engineering

Unleash the powers of the Nuclei and take the nuclear scenario to a bigger altitude.

Are you the engineer for it?
