Graduate Programs in Nuclear Engineering
Our graduate degrees have limited formal course requirements. You and your adviser can tailor a program to your needs and educational goals. With our many tenured faculty and the breadth of mechanical engineering focus areas you can pursue an area in the mechanical engineering field that is important to you.
We are one of the few universities in the U.S. with a research reactor on campus. Our students have the unique opportunity to learn and research in state-of-the-art experimental facilities under the supervision of internationally renowned faculty, scientists, and engineers. We have especially strong research programs in nuclear power, reactor design, and nuclear materials.
Students select courses and write a thesis or paper in one or more of the following general fields:
- Nuclear Materials
- Reactor Controls
- Reactor Thermal Hydraulics
- Reactor Physics
- Radiation Detection and Imaging
- Radioisotopes and Radiochemistry
- Radiation Detection and Monitoring
