Information on Fall 2020 Instruction

The Department of Nuclear Engineering will continue to offer all scheduled classes for Fall 2020. All classes will be available online for all students, with a very limited number of classes that may have an in-person option as well. Based on campus guidelines, students will not be required to attend in-person classes or be present on campus for the smaller discussion sections. Campus is continuing its commitment to ensuring the safety of our faculty, staff, and students by following the proper safety measures instituted by local public health officials.

We are looking forward to seeing all our students in Fall 2020 either online or in-person. The full list of courses with in-person instruction will be available in July.
If you have further questions regarding the Nuclear Engineering course schedule or major requirements, please email our student services advisor, Kirsten Wimple Hall,

Statement from the Nuclear Engineering Department Regarding Current Events.

We, the Department of Nuclear Engineering at UC Berkeley are deeply appalled by the racist killings of recent weeks and mourn the tragic loss of the lives of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade and Breonna Taylor and the racism directed at Christian Cooper and so many more. We as a department stand in solidarity with the victims of this violence taking place across America.

Our society’s failure to protect our people of color, disadvantaged and the most vulnerable among us from any form of attack is deeply concerning and shows the deep underlying systemic disregard for the basic rights of minority groups.

We express our solidarity with those who have bravely engaged in peaceful protests across the country. We support the peaceful and respectful actions taken by so many demanding an end to racism and hatred.

Unchecked violence at the hands of police and civilians requires our urgent attention.

All of us -- as faculty, staff, parents, students, and colleagues -- must renew our commitment to actively stand against systemic racism and the devaluation of Black Lives.
