Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The nuclear engineering track under the mechanical engineering program is designed to combine broad engineering disciplines with knowledge of engineering principles specific to the nuclear industry. A degree in mechanical engineering with the nuclear engineering track should prepare graduates for work at power plants, fuel generation facilities, government regulatory agencies, and the design and manufacture of components and systems associated with handling nuclear materials. The program is further intended to adequately prepare students for graduate work in nuclear engineering.
