Nuclear Engineering Minor

The minor in nuclear engineering is offered online and is open to engineers who are already working in the engineering industry and wish to expand their knowledge and training in the nuclear area. Current engineering students at any ABET-accredited institution can also take course work toward the minor and earn this credential upon the completion of their degree.

The program allows students to acquire a formal background in nuclear engineering subjects and fulfills a societal need for engineers with nuclear engineering experience. All courses needed for the program are available online. Students never need to come to campus for any course work. 

Careers in Nuclear Engineering

Our nation is experiencing a resurgence in societal interest in nuclear power as a means to address the country’s energy needs and combat problems commonly associated with widespread usage of fossil fuels. As a result of this expansion of nuclear power, many employers are in the process of making plans to significantly increase the number of engineers they hire, including those in:

  • nuclear power plant construction
  • nuclear engineering operations and regulations

In many cases, these hiring organizations would prefer that the engineers have a background in nuclear engineering, either in the form of a nuclear engineering degree or course work related to the nuclear engineering field.

Accreditation

Kansas State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

The nuclear engineering minor is offered through the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering in the College of Engineering. The department’s undergraduate programs are accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) and the same engineering faculty are fully engaged in all the high-quality undergraduate and graduate programs.
