A landscape of opportunities in engineering

There are many different disciplines for engineers in the nuclear industry, including:

  • Structural design
  • Core design 
  • Safety analysis
  • Fuel management
  • Fusion energy and plasma physics
  • Waste management
  • Reactor physics and radiation transport
  • Reactor thermal hydraulics and heat transfer

When the world looks to innovation in engineering, they look to India’s growing talent pool. Engineering is one of the most elite and respected careers in India, and the country is home to the largest number of engineering education institutes in the world. 

As a result, there were a staggering fifteen lakh engineering graduates in 2021 alone. That said, in the past, only 2.5 lakh of those got engineering jobs in India. But now, more opportunities are opening up, especially in nuclear, with opportunities to have a global presence.
