This program is not currently accepting students.


A Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology with a major in nuclear engineering technology teaches students to safely apply mathematics, science and nuclear principles for production of power, waste disposal, medicine and manufacturing.

The nuclear engineering technology major is designed to provide breadth of training for engineers and related technical personnel at the Luminant Comanche Peak Steam Electric Station. The program has a strong foundation in mathematics and science and adds nuclear engineering principles ranging from materials science to reactor design. Courses in fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, electrical circuit design, electric power generation and automatic control systems augment the curriculum. The program enhances the reactor operator training provided by Luminant by stressing the fundamentals of underlying physical and engineering principles behind many plant operating procedures.

Nuclear engineering technology is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET (111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202; 410-347-7700).
