Nuclear Engineering Certificate


The objective of the Nuclear Engineering Certificate is to develop the basic competencies needed by science and engineering graduates to contribute quickly and effectively to the renaissance of nuclear science and technology in the United States and abroad.

The nuclear engineering certificate currently targets competency gaps that exist in the following educational areas :

  • Basic theoretical concepts of nuclear physics, reactor physics, reactor kinetics, fuel depletion and energy removal.
  • Fundamental analytical skills that can aid in understanding nuclear energy problems and solutions.
  • Interfaces between engineering disciplines involved with the design of a reactor core and the reactor coolant system for light water reactors.
  • Knowledge of important social and technical issues related to nuclear science and technology.

Requirements for Bioengineering Students


None of the three core courses, ENGR 1700, 1701 or 1702, satisfy any concentration elective. Two of the three courses can be used to satisfy the Bioengineering 2-course, 6-credit advanced engineering/science elective requirement. The third course is extra and on your own.

Supporting Courses


Two (as yet to be specified) supporting courses are required.
