Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering

The graduate program in nuclear and radiological engineering/medical physics leads to the degrees of Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering, Master of Science in Medical Physics, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy. In nuclear and radiological engineering, students with a bachelor's degree in engineering pursue the Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering degree, while students with a Bachelor of Science degree in other fields enroll for the Master of Science degree. Depending on the career objectives of the student, the Woodruff School may encourage a thesis as part of the Master of Science program. Nuclear and radiological engineering students must earn a graduate grade-point average of at least 3.0 and satisfy all remaining requirements to be certified for the master's degree.
