Student and Alumni Mentoring Program

The Ken and Mary Alice Lindquist Department of Nuclear Engineering and our alumni society, the Penn State Nuclear Engineering Society (PSNES), jointly support a robust mentoring and networking program for our students. Students can initiate a mentoring connection with a nuclear engineering alumnus. Alumni, in turn, provide guidance, and networking opportunities for students.

Mentorships and networking connections create value in your education in many ways. By getting to know a professional in your field, you can:

  • Open network connections to any number of engineering companies
  • Gain a professional reference for your job search
  • Learn about career paths in your field based on your mentor's experiences
 
 

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 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.
