Im thinking about going into nuclear engineering but i have this fear that its going to be astronomically hard. Like only for M.I.T. super nerd geniuses. What would you guys rate to be the hardest- easiest engineering branch to go into, in terms of the schooling? Also i am afraid once i get a nuclear engineering degree i wont be able to find a job. Even tho i live 15 miles from a nuke plant. I also have it in my head that i will be moving around the country every single week and ill never be around my family. The job I'm hoping for is to work at the plant close to me for a long while. Do nuke engineers work at a plant, or just help build them?? Can you guys help me out on these questions.
