Students who pursue a master’s degree are seeking to increase their knowledge and skills in a specific area of study. Most programs require an undergraduate degree in a related discipline. A Master in Nuclear Energy Engineering can provide a competitive edge for careers in the field.

What is a Master in Nuclear Energy Engineering? Program studies consist of knowledge and skills related to nuclear technology and policy. Courses may include reactor physics, nuclear fuels and materials, fuel cycle, waste management and safety issues. Discussions of economic, social and political contexts for nuclear power prepare graduates for a globalized industry. Students acquire skills in the engineering and operation of nuclear systems, monitoring and manufacturing processes, rules and regulations, technical criteria and safety design. Instruction in the intertwining of these areas produces the ability to provide leadership in multidisciplinary projects.

On a personal level, the benefits of the degree include advancement of career opportunities in addition to the ability to participate in development and improvement of systems. Both workers and the public can profit from better safety methods and enhanced engineering design.

Programs are available worldwide and cost varies according to location and curriculum. Students should research their possibilities to determine which option best meets their goals.

Nuclear energy is used in many countries around the world, providing an alternative to fossil fuels in meeting the growing demand for power generation. Professionals are needed in countries where development plans are being implemented as well as in places where nuclear power is currently utilized. Graduates are employed by utility companies, laboratories, consulting firms, plant designing firms, and government and private agencies. Jobs include design engineering and development, research, academic instruction, project or service management and plant operation. In addition to the field of power generation, nuclear energy experts are needed in the areas of medicine, agriculture, manufacturing and security.
