Main Question or Discussion Point

The field I am willing to work on is thermal hydraulics, I am more into the industry than academic work. I am now lost . the 2 options I have is either get a masters in nuclear engineering or maybe in mechanical engineering, or go into the industry and work in energy companies " which is hard to find without having masters.

I like the Masters in mechanical engineering route, if only because your CV will say you are a versatile engineer. You may be able to do some NE subjects as well, you'd have to ask about that though, it may not be possible..

Maybe work in industry and see if they will pay your way to a Masters? This could also give you more perspective on which degree route to follow.

if you can get a job now, do so, there are no guarantees in a couple of years.

where (what country) are you studying, and where do you want to work?

if your interest is TH then mechanical probably makes more sense. NE master is going to have lots of reactor theory that you may not care about.
