Nuclear Engineering is based on the principles of nuclear physics.
Nuclear Engineering provides knowledge about uses of nuclear fission, construction and design of nuclear reactors, invention of nuclear materials, and processing and management of nuclear reactors. Based on principles of nuclear physics, specialists in this field are considered top-notch professionals. Though a comfortable life in financial terms, a nuclear engineer is always on the risk of exposure to nuclear hazards.
Nuclear Engineers can get employment in government and private agencies dealing with environmental safety. They can also opt to work as researchers in Research & Development organizations. In academics, nuclear engineers can join universities as lectures and professors.
