Courses from multiple academic units constitute both the core and elective classes available in this engineering certificate program. All of the core classes and many of the Nuclear Power Generation elective courses will be offered online through the Engineering Office of Global Outreach and Extended Education (GOEE). The graduate-level certificate program requires 18 hours of coursework with a minimum of two-thirds at the 500-level or higher.
As a student, you will typically begin with the study of nuclear science and engineering fundamentals. Subsequent courses focus on reactor theory, power plant dynamics, structural materials, and operational safety. Elective courses allow you to tailor the remaining studies toward facilitating your career goals and focusing on studies tied to your discipline.
