Applicants to graduate study in Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences should have a bachelor’s degree in nuclear, chemical, electrical, or mechanical engineering; engineering physics or physics; chemistry; or mathematics from a recognized engineering program. Applicants who do not have an undergraduate degree in nuclear engineering should take courses in atomic and nuclear physics (Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences 311-312, or equivalent) and advanced mathematics for engineers (Mathematics 454, or equivalent).
Students without these prerequisites will need to make up the deficiencies in addition to the thirty hours required for the MS degree. An upper level course in electronic circuits (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science 314 or equivalent), a course in fluid mechanics (Civil and Environmental Engineering 325, or equivalent), and a course in digital computer programming (Engineering 101, Elec. Eng. and Comp. Sci. 283, or equivalent) are recommended as desirable preparation.
