Question 1 of 25
How important are the following: safety, rules, and procedures when dealing with nuclear energy?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Nuclear Energy can be utilised in a constructive manner as well as in destructive manner so it is very important to handle this dangerous technology very well. So are safety measure and rules and procedures which keep this under check. With out proper safety of the man power and the equipment used in the technology it is not possible to harness the positive side of the nucLear energy. Fukushima disaster in japan in 2011 is a benchmark to remind us that nuclear technology should be handled with very care which is only possible by setting us certain procedures and safety rules.

Question 18 of 25
Why is it so important to follow the details so precisely in nuclear energy?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
NucLear engineering is a dangerous technology. And technically if we see the anatomy of the reactions we can conclude that a very vast amount of energy is released in a very short time through a chain reaction and here we are onky going to control that chain reaction . If we are not precise in our approach... It will lead to destruction. Nuclear plant will become an atom bomb.
2.
Absolutely, since nuclear energy deals with radioactive material it is imperative to maintain a clear and thorough system.
Question 19 of 25
Tell us about a time when you were particularly effective on prioritizing tasks and completing a project on schedule.
User-Submitted Answers
1.
It was my B. Tech final year project. I was working on class of analogue circuits called as the translinear circuits and I had to design a filter using these structures. And at that time I was getting no positive results with my work. So it got a little hasty where I had to complete the project in time and I did it when I observed my mistakes and changed my approach.
Question 20 of 25
Do you believe nuclear fusion will soon be a reliable power source?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
It is possible. But fiRST we have to become self reliable in nuclear fission itself. Because nucLear fusion requires a vry large amount of energy to fuse the atoms. And this kind of energy can be obtained by fission itself. There is no other way in present days to achive such amout of enegy except for nuclear fission.
Question 21 of 25

User-Submitted Answers
1.
There is going to an enormous development in this field and in the Indian context also India has to become self reliant in the field of clean energy. And thete are new projects coming up for the purpose. But in next 50 years I see that about25 to 50 percent of the energy distribution in india through nuclear processes only.

Question 24 of 25
Why is nuclear power a great energy source? In your opinion.
User-Submitted Answers
1.
We are getting too much dependent on fossil fuels. The oil prices are already high and also it is not convenient for the environment. Our major economy is dependent of coal but according to statistics it would require a million times less uranium than the coak to produce same amount of energy every year and that too without gren house emmissions so nuclear technology is indeed a great source of energy.
Question 25 of 25
Why a career in nuclear power?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Its challeging. And it has a vast scope atleast for the next 50 years. Because this is the branch of science where anvancement in the field of science is directly affecting the common people. Electricity is the basic need of every one. And even if we consider the alarming rate of global warming it is very crucial that we develop our self towards nuclear technology.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
