Nuclear Security Science and Analysis Graduate Certificate

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Engineering

The Department of Nuclear Engineering offers a graduate certificate in nuclear security science and analysis (NSSA). The program is designed primarily for students seeking specialization in nuclear security science with emphasis on current or aspiring members of the intelligence community. Additionally, this program will prepare graduate students to engage in the research and development of new tools and processes related to nuclear security science and analysis.

The 12-credit certificate is earned by completing four courses from the following list, including two required courses, one qualifying Nuclear Engineering elective course, and one NSSA elective. Required courses include: NE 530 Nuclear Security Science and Analysis  and NE 404 Nuclear Fuel Cycle . Qualifying Nuclear Engineering elective courses include NE 433 Principles of Health Physics  and NE 470 Nuclear Reactor Theory I . NSSA electives include NE 532 Advanced Topics in Nuclear Security Science and Analysis , POLS 688 Special Topics in International Politics , and NE 550 Radiation Measurements Laboratory . The selection of courses, which must be approved by the department, is determined through a student advising conference that considers the student’s personal interests, academic background, and work experience. Criteria for acceptance into the program are the same as for acceptance into the M.S. program in nuclear engineering.
