About

Master of Science in Materials and Nuclear Engineering offered by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, is intended to provide the student with a solid background in either applied nuclear science and engineering, with an emphasis in used fuel management, criticality, or radiation detection, or material science and engineering, with an emphasis in materials performance.

Overview

The Materials and Nuclear Engineering program offered by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, consists of two master’s degree tracks: Materials Engineering and Nuclear Engineering. The materials engineering track consists of a core curriculum in material science, metallurgy, and materials performance, which is to be augmented by advanced level classes in corrosion engineering, physical metallurgy, mechanical metallurgy, mechanics of materials, and nuclear materials. The nuclear engineering track consists of a core curriculum in applied nuclear science and engineering, coupled with advanced classes in the student’s sub-discipline.

Learning Objectives

M.S.M.N.E. Non-Thesis Track

The M.S.M.N.E. non-thesis track strives to provide a learning centered environment where accomplished faculty share their experience and knowledge with students so that graduates of the program can:

  • Demonstrate an advanced technical knowledge of state-of-the-art and evolving areas associated with the mechanical engineering field so that they can lead and direct engineering and scientific industry teams in their chosen field of study.
  • Demonstrate the ability to solve open-ended design problems.
