I heard that nuclear engineering majors basically ended up being high-tech plumbers.

The reaction chambers are sealed once they're put into place. All the engineers do is monitor the coolant water.

150k a year for being a plumber is fine with me.. on top of that if you read any of what i wrote at the top, robotics is included.. you can do a lot of stuff with skills like that..
