The Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering offers the following degree programs. Please click the link to find out the requirements for each program.
The objectives of the program of study leading to the doctoral degree are to provide the student with comprehensive knowledge of nuclear science and engineering and to develop the student's competence in conducting original research.
Doctoral Degree Requirements
The object of the Master's degree program is to give the student as thorough a knowledge of some phase of nuclear engineering as can be obtained in a minimum of one academic year of full-time study. The Master's program may serve either as the first part of the student's work for a more advanced degree or as training for professional employment in nuclear engineering.
Master of Science Degree Requirements
The objective of this program is to offer students the opportunity to leverage tools they learn in the Sloan School of Management and the Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering to become innovative business leaders with the technical skills to implement complex operations and technology solutions in the nuclear field. Students admitted to this program will earn two degrees in two years as part of the Leaders for Global Operations (LGO) Program at MIT. Students will earn a Masters of Science in the Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering and an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management. Applications for the dual degree program are accepted at the LGO website.
The object of the Nuclear Engineer's degree program is to provide a broader knowledge of nuclear engineering than required for the Master's degree and to develop competence in engineering application or design but with less emphasis on research than that characterizing a doctoral program. The program includes completion of both an extensive and individually arranged academic course program and a special project of significant engineering value.
