About

The Nuclear Engineering graduate program at The Ohio State University is designed to prepare students for successful careers in a variety of specialty areas associated with the application of radiation, radioactive materials and nuclear fission. 

Overview

The Nuclear Engineering graduate program at The Ohio State University is housed within the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Our research is further strengthened by the presence of Ohio State's Nuclear Reactor Lab (OSU-NRL).

Ohio State’s nuclear engineering graduate students and their research innovations touch the lives of countless individuals. From developing a neutron detector capable of operating in high-radiation environments to improving the traditional probabilistic risk assessment approach, our students are impacting a variety of environmental and nuclear science areas. You can generate a bright future by pursuing nuclear engineering at Ohio State.

Career prospects

Graduates of the program work for a variety of organizations including research laboratories, design organizations, nuclear power plants, academic institutions and regulatory organizations. Students work side-by-side with the faculty on projects for research sponsors such as the Department of Energy, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, NASA, national laboratories, nuclear power plants and others. The Ohio State University also offers an undergraduate minor degree in nuclear engineering, which is of particular value to engineers that do not plan to obtain advanced degrees in nuclear engineering.
