This degree emphasizes the nuclear sciences rather than nuclear engineering. Students pursue a pre-medical emphasis or a pre-medical physics emphasis. Any student pursuing this degree must have a selected program, including option area electives, approved in advance by an advisor. Diverse opportunities await graduates of the Department of Nuclear and Radiological Engineering (NRE) because nuclear sciences have and will continue to make major contributions to electricity production, medical diagnostic imaging and therapy, non-destructive testing as well as radiation detection and measurement. These opportunities will continue to grow as we face more challenges in energy production and medicine. For the last three decades, the nuclear industry has contributed over 20% of our country’s electricity production, and major advances continue to be made in the development of radiation diagnostics and treatment for medical and industrial applications.
