About

The graduate program in the Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences at the University of Michigan is one of the most highly regarded nuclear engineering programs in the country, regularly ranked in the top two by U.S. News and World Report.

Overview

The faculty train the next generation of nuclear engineers to design, build, run and regulate nuclear power plants in the US and abroad. Students also gain expertise as scientists and engineers who advance the application of radiation in medicine, nuclear security and the dismantling of weapons, the disposal of radioactive wastes and basic research.

While the department focuses new energy on these emerging needs, its commitment to the more traditional areas research pillars — fission systems and radiation transport, plasmas and fusion, materials, and measurements — remains strong.
