Nuclear Engineering at South Carolina

Nuclear engineers work in a range of fields from electrical power generation to space power and propulsion. To prepare for this exciting field, you can pursue a master's or Ph.D. in nuclear engineering. 

Graduate Degrees

At the College of Engineering and Computing, our nuclear engineering students may choose degree programs that lead to the master of engineering (M.E.) or the master of science (M.S.) degree, which requires an adviser-approved thesis, as does the research-based doctoral level Ph.D. in nuclear engineering. Although there is no undergraduate nuclear engineering degree program, we do offer a minor in nuclear engineering and an accelerated B.S. to M.S. degree for students majoring in another area of engineering who wish to complete the nuclear engineering master's degree in as little as one year beyond their bachelor of science degree. Distance education options are available through our APOGEE program.
