Nuclear engineering is all about the production and application of nuclear energy and the uses of
radiation and radioactive materials. Most nuclear engineers design, construct and operate nuclear power
plants, which generate electric power. They take care of every stage in the production of nuclear energy –
from the processing of nuclear fuels to the disposal of radioactive waste from nuclear reactors. Nuclear
science is about studying atomic nuclei and exploiting their energy to serve humankind. It is used in food
irradiation, medicine (think cancer treatment), electricity production, space and the industry. A nuclear
scientist is a cross between a physicist and an engineer.
Work Environment for Nuclear Engineers :
Nuclear engineers hold about 17,700 jobs. The largest employers of nuclear engineers are as follows:
• Electric power generation – 40%
• Federal government, excluding postal service – 17
• Scientific research and development services – 15
• Engineering services – 7
• Manufacturing – 5
Skills Needed :
• S/he should be passionate about engineering
• Good knowledge about properties of materials is mandatory
• Should have good communication skills
• Good concepts in mathematics and physics
• Basic knowledge of thermal hydraulics, instrumentation, control and nuclear physics is desirable
• A nuclear engineer must have problem-solving skills and the ability to put theoretical knowledge
into practice
How do I get there?
Opt for science with physics and maths in Class 12. To get into Delhi University’s MTech programme in
nuclear science and technology, you should have a bachelor’s degree with physics for at least two years/
four semesters and maths for at least a year/ two semesters. Plus, you need to clear the Joint Admission
test for MSc (JAM).
Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) holds an all-India entrance test for an orientation course for
engineering graduates and science postgraduates (OCES) as well as a two-year DAE Graduate
Fellowship Scheme for engineering graduates and physics post-graduates (DGFS).
