Description of the major
The overall educational objective of the Nuclear Engineering program is to help our graduates prepare to function effectively in a wide range of career paths in nuclear engineering. The technical part of the curriculum emphasizes power engineering, which refers to complex systems used to generate electricity. Because our emphasis in power engineering is strong, and because a shortage for this expertise exists in the industry, generally the industry values our graduates highly.
We recognize that nuclear science is an important growth area. We constantly assess and review the needs of our undergraduate students and their most frequent employers and use this feedback to consider revisions to our curriculum so that it is responsive to the needs of our constituents.
