Government and technology interact more, and with greater consequences, every year. Whether the issue area is environmental protection, intellectual property (copyright and the internet), health care, water supply, or any of myriad other contexts, government agencies at all levels, non-profit organizations and private industry need people who understand technology on its own terms and also the ways government supports, controls, or directs it. Because this program is small, each student’s program tends to be customized with the agreement of advisors in both programs ,
The Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering may be earned in combination with the Master of Public Policy from the Goldman School of Public Policy under a coordinated program. Applicants must be accepted to both programs to pursue a concurrent degree.
Please note that each department/program has its own separate admissions committee and review process. Therefore, admission to one of the degrees in the concurrent program does not guarantee admission to the other program.
For questions regarding admissions, contact Lezley Hightower. For information on research within the concurrent program, contact Andrew Reddie, Associate Research Professor of Public Policy, or Bethany Goldblum, Associate Professor of Nuclear Engineering.
