The Department of Nuclear Engineering offers programs leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees, and three Graduate Certificates. Students may elect a traditional nuclear engineering program focusing on fission energy or a radiological engineering concentration, which prepares students for careers in the radiation safety field (health physics). Both programs are designed for graduates of accredited undergraduate programs in engineering, physics, chemistry, or mathematics.

All entering students must have, as a minimum, competency in mathematics through ordinary differential equations. Admitted applicants will be advised of any prerequisite undergraduate courses that may be required for their graduate studies. In addition, students without a BS in nuclear engineering, or the equivalent, must take NE 433 , NE 470  both of which may be taken for graduate credit. However, students in the radiological engineering concentration will take NE 551  in place of NE 433 . Students electing the radiological engineering concentration must take NE 401 , NE 551 , NE 552  and NE 490  in their course of study. The department head is the contact for all interested students, both those with nuclear engineering degrees and those from other disciplines.

Graduate Credit for Undergraduate Courses
400-level courses in nuclear engineering may be used for graduate credit. However, at least two-thirds of the minimum required hours in the MS must be taken in courses numbered 500 or above.
