Department of Nuclear Engineering!




The field of nuclear engineering is currently evolving and progressing in remarkable ways, both in the United States and around the world. Several new and exciting fields are emerging, including clean fusion energy and nuclear medicine. These fields hold immeasurable potential by alleviating the adverse environmental effects of other energy sources and by greatly improving human health and welfare. We at UCBNE strive to position ourselves at the forefront of academia and research, further progressing the field of nuclear engineering.
