University System of Maryland Hagerstown

Nuclear Engineering (M.Eng.)

The Graduate Program in Nuclear Engineering provides a strong, flexible, highly analytical as well as experimental education leading to the Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees.

Demand for nuclear engineers is on the rise.

There is a rapidly growing national need for the education of a large number of graduate-level nuclear engineers at the U.S. Department of Energy, at nuclear utilities, and at energy consulting companies. A rapid expansion in the number of nuclear power plants is expected in the next five years.

UMD's Graduate Program in Nuclear Engineering leverages unique strengths to meet the need.

The University of Maryland is committed to the education and training of future graduate-level nuclear engineers, researchers and national leaders. Our program combines cross-disciplinary engineering principles in nuclear sciences and reliability with new concepts in nuclear engineering, advanced research approaches and practical industrial methods. The education our students receive is directed toward a greater emphasis of safety, reliability and the environment, while maintaining our strengths in reactor engineering.
