About Nuclear Engineering

The Nuclear Engineering (NE) program was established to contribute to research and education for the application of nuclear science and engineering. Within the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE), the Nuclear Engineering program is a discipline with various applications including homeland security, power generation, radiation transport methods, nondestructive imaging and detection, advanced nuclear materials, nuclear reactor thermal hydraulics, as well as nuclear safeguards and nonproliferation.

Many diverse opportunities await graduates of the NE program as nuclear science and engineering continue to make major contributions to electricity production, medical diagnostic imaging and therapy, non-destructive testing as well as radiation detection and measurement. These opportunities will continue to grow as we face more challenges in energy production and the expanded use of nuclear technology.

The curriculum covers a variety of subjects including radiation interactions, particle diffusion and transport, reactor physics, thermal hydraulics, fuel cycle and waste management, risk assessment, and radiation protection and dosimetry. To advance the use of nuclear science and engineering, the NE faculty have been involved in cutting edge research in many different areas including high performance computing, advanced reactor design, and fuels for space nuclear power and propulsion, particle transport methods and their application for simulation of real-life nuclear systems, reactor physics, advanced nuclear fuel design, and nondestructive testing and detection.

The Nuclear Engineering Program at the University of Florida strives to attract and develop an outstanding and diverse faculty, student body and staff as well as to provide the best undergraduate and graduate education in nuclear engineering.


What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
