Thinking about Penn State?

Engineers are creative problem solvers who make our lives better by designing and producing things that benefit people. They apply mathematical and scientific principles to find solutions to the challenges facing our society.

At the Lindquist Department of Nuclear Engineering, our programs are consistently ranked among the best in the country. A strong focus on experimental research distinguishes us from many other programs.

For undergraduates, we offer a strong engineering foundation with degrees in nuclear engineering, as well as dual degrees. Students can expand their engineering knowledge through one of the many academic minors available at Penn State or by joining a major-related club or student groups.

Our graduate programs are extremely flexible and students have the option of completing a resident or online masters degree, or a doctoral degree in nuclear engineering. Either way, students have the opportunity to work with some of the nation’s best faculty.

Employers love to hire Penn State engineers because of the contributions they make in the communities where they live and work. Our graduates regularly accept positions at Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, national research laboratories, and other research universities. In addition, many of our graduates start their own companies.

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.
