UNDERGRADUATE : Course 22 Roadmaps :
Nuclear Materials (NSE + MSE Double Major)

Emphasizes response of materials in nuclear and extreme environments. Follows the flexible course 3A option which allows double major with reasonable course load.

    Some possible student outcomes:

  • Preparation for graduate studies in nuclear materials
  • Fission fuel cycle research
  • Fusion materials engineering and research
  • Materials in extremes

UROPs among fission faculty and at the Corrosion Lab, and PSI Science Center are highly encouraged.
