A dream comes true to all Nuclear Scientist aspirants, isn’t it?
NEST exams the initial step
NEST exam is the initial stepping stone hoping to become Nuclear Scientist working under the umbrella of the Bhabha Atomic Research Center with one day, a desire to touch the sky high. The NEST or the National Entrance Screening Test is a must if you want to get admitted to a five year integrated MSc program delivered by the efficient and skilled professors at the Department of Atomic Energy affiliated to Mumbai University and also at the National Institute of Science Education and Research at Bhubaneswar. The courses deal with basic science for research and development in the areas of science subjects.
These institutes have begun with the command to give great teaching in essentials of science by a personnel of recognized scientists inserted in a dynamic exploration environment and to make a national pool of scientists prepared to take up examination challenges in the boondocks of fundamental and also in the field of applied sciences. The Integrated Msc program at these institutes takes after a semester-based course structure and nonstop appraisal inside an adaptable and creative scholarly, educational module, presenting the understudies to research right on time in their project. The graduated students from NISER and CBS give affirmation of accomplishment the second stride towards joining the BARC programs.

Those who have come out with flying colors are posted as scientific officers in one of the many DAE units.
To get an upper hand for a free flow to become a nuclear scientist or working as a scientific officer in the Department of Atomic Energy the best is to get admission in NISER or CBS. This is only possible if you are able to crack the NEST exams.
