Online M.Eng. in Nuclear Engineering

The Lindquist Department of Nuclear Engineering in partnership with Penn State World Campus offers an online master of engineering degree in nuclear engineering. Penn State's nuclear engineering faculty are the same faculty who teach the resident instruction classes on campus. As a student learning online, you'll take the same courses and fulfill the same requirements as on-campus students. And, when you graduate, your diploma will look no different from the one earned by students on our physical campus.

For more information, including how to apply, please visit the Penn State World Campus website.

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.
