Nuclear Engineer initially gets a salary of 3,50,000(INR). And earning raises manifold based on performance and experience.
For advance studies, a Professional Engineering (PE) license (which allows for higher levels of leadership and independence) is required. Licensed engineers are called professional engineers (PEs). A PE can oversee the work of other engineers, sign off on projects, and provide services directly to the public.
