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,
