Graduate Degree Programs

Where Future Leaders of the Global Nuclear Engineering Community are Cultivated

We educate ethical nuclear engineers to provide technical expertise to the nuclear engineering communities around the world, expand the frontier of knowledge through cutting-edge and innovative research in all areas of nuclear engineering, and dynamically engage with the global society through strong partnerships.

Our students come from a variety of undergraduate preparations which include other branches of engineering, various fields of science, and mathematics. Likewise, our faculty members represent a broad range of academic disciplines. This diversity enables us to accommodate the interests of our graduate students in exploring new opportunities and challenges in the rapidly broadening field of nuclear engineering.
