Main Question or Discussion Point

Anybody know of any nuclear engineering graduate programs where I can study advanced reactor designs and fuels. I would like to research liquid fluoride thorium reactors. I was looking at NC State but I don't see anything on their that suggest they have any research in those areas.

You should check the interests of individual faculty members - this would be a research activity, rather than a regular course.

For example: http://www.engin.umich.edu/ners/academics/grad
And talk to the the graduate chair about your interests.

Thanks for the info, and I do want to do research. This is going to be for a MS in Nuclear Engineering

Most nuclear engineering graduate schools will have a few researcher (see professors) who have research in either "advanced" reactor designs or new fuels. For example, Georgia Tech has a grant to develop a new Ultra Safe Light Water Reactor (https://inlportal.inl.gov/portal/server.pt/community/neup_home/600/fy12_irp_awards [Broken] top award). Are you wanting to do material science research for fuels? Or reactor physics for reactor design? Those are the real things you should be asking yourself.
