About the Department

The Department of Nuclear Engineering offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in Nuclear Engineering. We are the only nuclear engineering program in the state of North Carolina and one of the premier departments in the southeast United States. The Carolinas currently contributes to the advancement of the nuclear enterprise regionally, nationally and internationally. The State of North Carolina has accepted new/updated energy policy with accelerated clean energy strategy to achieve net-zero complete transition by 2050, which include the nuclear energy as part of clean energy mix. The State of North Carolina is also committed to expanding engineering education and research including the expansion of COE at NCSU to address the growing need of advanced engineering skill in emerging areas. Nationally and internationally the United States is leading the clean energy economy of the future with initiatives across a range of sectors and all stages of innovation: research, development, and deployment. The advanced nuclear reactor technology will be an important contributor to a decarbonized power sector and net zero future. Moving to a net-zero economy would create millions of new jobs worldwide by 2030 across energy, construction, and automotive sectors, 65% of which will be high-skilled jobs. The United States is committed to realizing not only the emissions reductions potential, but also the economic growth and jobs creation opportunities across key sectors. Through collaborative efforts of various stakeholders, NC State’s Nuclear Engineering Department is increasing its footprint on the national and global level in both advanced nuclear energy developments and implementations and state-of-the-art nuclear science and engineering applications in emerging technological and digital engineering areas.

With an increasing faculty population and research areas/projects, there is greater opportunity for learning in the broad areas of advanced nuclear reactor engineering, radiation detection and admeasurements, nuclear materials, security and non-proliferation, computational science and digital engineering, plasma science and engineering, radiological and waste engineering, and advanced nuclear applications in emerging high-technology, bioengineering and digital engineering areas.
