Throughout its long history, the nuclear program has had a commitment to educating the brightest students in the United States and abroad -- a commitment which grows stronger now as the program expands to encompass health physics, radiation engineering, research reactor beam port experiments, radioactive waste management and reactor and computational nuclear engineering. 

In the future, the demand for nuclear and radiation engineers is expected to encompass new areas and technologies. Consequently, the graduate with a Nuclear and Radiation Engineering education can expect to have a wide choice of challenging and rewarding career opportunities. An education in Nuclear and Radiation Engineering prepares students to work on a variety of diverse problems at the frontiers of science and technology. These areas include:

  • Radiation Effects on Materials
  • Stewardship of Existing Nuclear Weapons
  • Managing Existing Radioactive Waste
  • Production Methods of Radioisotopes
  • Neutron Activation Analysis and Prompt Gamma Activation Analysis
  • Environmental Chemistry
  • Nuclear Electrical Power
  • Health Physics Applications
  • Neutron Imaging
  • Non-proliferation
  • Computational Nuclear Engineering
