Nuclear Engineering & Engineers Job

Nuclear Engineering & Engineers Job

Nuclear engineering is the branch of engineering concerned with the application of the breakdown (fission) as well as the fusion of atomic nuclei and/or the application of other sub-atomic physics, based on the principles of nuclear physics. In the sub-field of nuclear fission, it particularly includes the interaction and maintenance of systems and components like nuclear reactors, nuclear power plants, and/or nuclear weapons. The field also includes the study of medical and other applications of (generally ionizing) radiation, nuclear safety, heat/thermodynamics transport, nuclear fuel and/or other related technology (e.g., radioactive waste disposal), and the problems of nuclear proliferation.

So knowing after what nuclear engineering is, are you eagerly waiting to know how much money does a nuclear engineer make? Most entry-level nuclear engineers can expect a starting salary somewhere in the mid-$50,000 range, though the trend has been higher recently. If you are competent and work hard, in the nuclear power part of the industry you can expect significant raises early in your career and bonuses each year-end.

Nuclear Engineers job include: irradiating materials that will later be used as nuclear medicines or industrial isotopes, shielding calculations for containers that will move radioactive materials around the facility, and performing safety analysis for materials that will go in the reactor etc.

Nuclear engineers do require a college degree. Some foreign colleges offer dual degrees, such as mechanical engineering with an emphasis in nuclear. Other options include getting an engineering undergrad degree in mechanical or electrical and then getting masters in nuclear engineering. Also, don't focus solely on the math, physics and engineering topics. Read widely on a variety of topics, including waste disposal issues, power generation, the history of science and politics (a huge factor in our industry).

Nuclear energy and nuclear science are poised for a great comeback. Young men and women will be able to make long-term, profitable careers both as workers and as entrepreneurs. Not only are utilities hiring, but National Laboratories that do basic research need nuclear engineers.

Also, universities need people to teach the classes and a huge variety of jobs are available in support work, such as transportation, waste disposal, outage services, etc. Keep your eyes open and learn as much as you can - and you could wind up starting a business that could employ many people and make you very rich.

It's not just utilities that will need skilled people. Reactor designers such as Areva or Westinghouse will need your skills, engineering firms such as the Shaw Group or Bechtel will come calling, as will fuel fabricators, fuel enrichment facilities such as USEC and manufacturers of specialty steels, piping, chemicals, etc.

One interesting aspect of nuclear engineering is health physics. This branch deals with monitoring radiation at nuclear facilities, hospitals and industrial facilities. HP's help clean up contamination and implement programs to make sure operators of everything from reactors to X-ray machines to PET scanners handle the radiation utilized in that equipment in a safe and efficient manner.

Also, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is in desperate need of nuclear engineers to handle the coming wave of retirements and the coming wave of plant applications. And they pay well.

Nuclear jobs tend to cluster around nuclear power plants, nuclear reactors, and engineering firms in Bangladesh and abroad. Many opportunities will be in rural areas, as most facilities were built away from urban centers.

If you are flexible and willing to move, you can work for major multi-national engineering companies such as Bechtel, live all over the world and get paid well to do it.

Finding a job in nuclear engineering is best done while as a student. Recently Dhaka University and BUET have introduced Nuclear Engineering in their academic curricula. Moreover, Russia is going to open a nuclear energy plant in Bangladesh. So if you wanted to be a nuclear engineer try for it. A lot of vacant posts will be waiting for you. শিক্ষা সংক্রান্ত খবরাখবর নিয়মিত পেতে রেজিস্ট্রেশন করুন অথবা Log In করুন।
