Hello! I am just months away from finishing High School and both, nuclear and astronautical engineering are the careers I am striving towards to. The thing is that I have read so many bad things and prospects for nuclear engineering, that I am not sure if it is a viable career. I want to study in Germany, but with the nuclear plants shooting down in 2020, is there still any point on studying nuclear engineering? I am convinced it is the energy of the future, but more and more countries are shying away from it Also, if I were to study astronautical engineering, which other branch of engineering would I have to study first (mechanical or aeronautical)? How is the pay for nuclear engineers and astronautical engineers? Is there any other career you would recommend me? I love physics and mathematics and I am pretty good with chemistry (although I don't love it too much). I am looking for a profession that will have a good pay and will definitely have a good future.
