Online M.Eng. in Nuclear Engineering

The Ken and Mary Alice 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. When you graduate, your diploma will look no different than one earned by students on our physical campuses.

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 with a strong focus on experimental research. 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 Radiation Science and Engineering Center (RSEC) facilities, including the Breazeale Reactor, are available to nuclear engineering faculty and students at Penn State for research and instruction. RSEC houses the Breazeale Nuclear Reactor, the country’s first and longest operating licensed nuclear research reactor. Having access to an operating research reactor is a key strength for the department and enables Penn State to harness research and educational opportunities that are unique in the United States.
