Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering

USA

What will I learn?

The Master of Science (MS) curriculum in Nuclear Engineering is designed to develop new understanding through research and creativity. This degree is designed to be taken as a thesis option offering five specializations in power engineering, nonproliferation, nuclear materials, computational methods, and health physics. Four core courses define a core body of knowledge and are foundational for all students enrolled in the program – radiation interactions and shielding, radiation detection and measurements, reactor theory and reactor experimentation. These courses can be taken on-campus or via distance delivery methods. The five specialization options co-exist through overlapping elective courses (i.e., each elective course will be used for more than one specialization option). This approach equips students with the common body of knowledge while facilitating their progress in the selected specialization directions of interest. The MS program is designed to produce leaders in the development and application of technological solutions to problems involving nuclear and radiological materials and sources of radiation.
