If people is considering to enter this career, I would advice them to take a specialized program for nuclear engineering, that way, you are more likely to be chosen esp. there are only a few university that have nuclear engineering programs. I would recommend this career to people who want to work. If I can do it over again, I would still choose nuclear engineering. The pros in this field is that mostly you will work with people who are very careful because no one want to die or cause a nuclear accident. The cons would be the fact that you are likely to work far away from any urban center.
