About the Department

The Ken and Mary Alice Lindquist Department of Nuclear Engineering at Penn State is one of the top ranked nuclear engineering programs in the United States. A strong focus on experimental research distinguishes us from many other programs. Our actively growing program has 8 faculty members and almost 90 graduate students. In the Radiation Science and Engineering Center, nuclear engineering students can take advantage of the Breazeale Nuclear Reactor, the longest operating university research reactor in the country.

The department's offices and facilities are located throughout many buildings on campus; department administration currently resides in the Reber Building. Faculty offices and laboratory facilities can also be found in the Radiation Science and Engineering Center.

Penn State offers undergraduate and graduate students unique opportunities to learn and research in state-of-the-art experimental facilities under the supervision of internationally known faculty. In 2018, U.S. News and World Report ranked Penn State's nuclear engineering graduate program 9th in the country.

 
 

About

The Ken and Mary Alice Lindquist Department of Nuclear Engineering at Penn State is one of the top ranked nuclear engineering programs in the United States. The department distinguishes itself from other programs with a strong focus on experimental research in power, science, security and safety. The actively growing department leads four educational programs for students pursuing a bachelor of science, a master of science, a master of engineering or a doctoral degree. The department also houses the Breazeale Nuclear Reactor, the country’s first and longest operating licensed nuclear reactor. The construction and operation of the reactor introduced nuclear engineering to Penn State, and, in doing so, harnessed research and educational opportunities as key strengths for the department.
