I plan to graduate after this year from an undergraduate program in Electrical Engineering. I was torn between nuclear engineering and electrical for undergrad, but I opted for EE with the plan to do NE for graduate school. I learn best in lab settings/hands on, so I am only considering schools that have reactors (think it would be a great learning opportunity). So far I am considering the following programs: Texas A&M University North Carolina State University (may be a stretch due to its popularity) Kansas State University University of Florida Idaho State University Purdue University (may be a stretch due to its popularity) Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute My interests in the NE field are broad, but I know that I do not plan to research thermal hydraulics or purely computational things. Radiation detection/protection, reactor/core design, health physics, medical physics, and plasma physics are a few things that interest me. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!!
