The objectives of the nuclear engineering and radiation health physics undergraduate curricula are to prepare students for careers related to the many beneficial uses of nuclear technology and energy. Nuclear engineers apply scientific principles to the research, design, and operation of a wide variety of nuclear technology applications including power generation, medicine, and radioactive waste management. Radiation health physicists study methods used to protect people and their environment from radiation hazards while enabling the beneficial uses of radiation and radioactive materials. In addition, an emphasis is provided in nuclear instrumentation, nuclear systems and materials, radiation protection, reactor analysis and nuclear power economics and, particularly, safety and regulation in nuclear operations.
