The program is designed to prepare students for a career in industry, the national laboratories, or in state or federal regulatory agencies. The program, leading to a BS degree in Nuclear Engineering, emphasizes study in the following areas of nuclear engineering:  nuclear reactions and radiation, introduction to medical imaging, nuclear reactor theory and design, fusion power engineering, radioactive waste management, radiological and biophysics, and nuclear materials.

Many students will go on to complete a one-year master's degree program (we do not have a 5th year MS program at this time). Students interested in careers in scientific research or in college teaching go on to complete the doctorate.
