Prospects for Software Engineers in Nuclear Engineering

  1. Dec 30, 2008 #1
    Hi there !

    I've been doing some research regarding prospects in the nuke industry recently and came across this forum. I hope somebody can clear things up for me !

    I'm a software developer with a Bachelors degree in CSE and three years of experience in the industry.I've been considering a career switch into the nuclear industry and I'm interested in switching into some kind of position in the nuclear power sector that aligns with my skillset.

    I'm thinking of pursuing a Masters degree in Nuclear Engineering and I'm willing to put time, effort and money into this, but what I would like to know from you guys is : What kind of roles/positions could be available for a person with my career background ?

    Another thing I'm worried about is the fact that I won't hold a Bachelors degree in Nuclear engineering. Will having a background in CS and Masters in NE, put me at a disadvantage compared to my peers ?

    Any suggestions ?
