About Course

Nuclear engineering deals with the science that deals with the breakdown and fusion of atomic particles. A nuclear engineer majorly works towards the research and development of nuclear energy and radiation. They deals with radioactive wastes and ensures safe disposal of the same. They also gains in-depth knowledge about radioactive isotopes. Engineers of this field handle nuclear fuels and develop radioactive materials suitable for industrial and medical usage.

Nuclear engineering is a combination of nuclear physics and radiation science as well as general areas of engineering useful in any energy field.

Nuclear engineers have good scope of employment at nuclear power plant as nuclear power manufacturers, defence manufacturers, and more.

Nuclear engineers design, construct, supervise safe operations in a nuclear plant.
