Mission: Comprehensively educate and prepare Auburn University engineering students for careers in the commercial nuclear power generation industry
This program and 16-hour minor prepares students for careers specializing in the operation, support and service of America’s nuclear power generation industry. Students who complete the minor will have demonstrated an understanding of the industry’s basic construction techniques, power plant models, integration into the national electrical grid and common reactor plant operations. Coursework for the minor will take place in the classroom as well as on-site at nuclear power generating facilities, and will be led by Auburn faculty and nuclear industry leaders.
