The College of Engineering and Computing's Department of Mechanical Engineering offers programs leading to the Master of Science, Master of Engineering, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in nuclear engineering. Requirements for admission to graduate degree programs in nuclear engineering (ME, MS, PhD) include the general admission requirements of The Graduate School as well as more stringent departmental requirements.
In general, the admissions process is highly competitive. Admissions decisions are based on the quality of the applicant's previous university-level academic work (as reflected by grade point average or GPA), letters of recommendation, GRE scores, and other evidence of past accomplishments. For admission to the ME, MS, and PhD degree programs in nuclear engineering, applicants should have a BS degree, with a GPA of 3.00 (on a 4.00 scale) or better, from any ABET-accredited engineering program. Others, if admitted, may be required to fulfill additional course requirements to make-up any deficiencies.
A graduate minor in nuclear engineering is also available. Prospective graduate students who wish to apply for an advanced degree in nuclear engineering should begin by visiting the University's web site of the Graduate School and completing the graduate application form there.
