Why NPRE?

Because great opportunities await you!

The need to make a difference in tackling societal and scientific challenges motivates students in Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering. Our students study the development and use of nuclear energy and radiation sources for energy production, materials processing and science, and biomedical and industrial needs. The major leads to excellent career choices for highly proficient math and atomic physics students. Our graduates are passionate about  producing sustainable, carbon-free, clean, nuclear energy; advancing plasma processing for electronic and manufacturing technologies; and innovating the use of radiation for human healthcare and homeland security.
