The Nuclear Engineering graduate programs from University of Ontario Institute of Technology encompass the nuclear power industry, from fuel manufacture to radioactive waste disposal, and the many and varied applications of radiation in industrial and medical disciplines with a strong emphasis on health physics.


Typical workplace activities include fundamental and applied research, design and development of new equipment, systems and procedures, maintenance and modifications, commissioning and decommissioning of equipment and complete facilities, operation, analysis and regulatory affairs.

Graduates of a master's level degree program in Nuclear Engineering at University of Ontario Institute of Technology must be competent in a wide range of disciplines that impinge on the safe and reliable operation of the many and varied systems that comprise radiological equipment, nuclear power plants, and related facilities. They must understand the complex interrelationships between humans; non-human biota; and the physical, chemical, economic and social components of the environment. 

The program provides the depth and breadth of knowledge necessary for practicing professionals in nuclear engineering. Under the guidance of a research supervisor and a multi-disciplinary team of scientific and engineering faculty, each student has the opportunity to engage in an in-depth study of particular problems that emphasize theory and/or experimentation.

The objective of the Master of Applied Science (MASc) program is to prepare students for a career as engineers in fields that require specialized knowledge and skills. It is expected that graduates of the program will be able to work as engineers in industry, government or continue their education by pursuing a doctoral degree. 

The objective of the Master of Engineering (MEng) program is to provide the opportunity for engineers in industry to upgrade and expand their skills, including developing research skills. Graduates of the MEng program will be able to use what they have learned in a variety of applications in industry, government, and academia.
