The mission statement for the Nuclear Engineering Department, which embraces the missions of both the college and university, states that the Department of Nuclear Engineering has four primary missions, these being:

  • Provide a quality education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels to students who desire to pursue careers in nuclear science and engineering;
  • Develop research programs in areas of emphasis related to applications of nuclear science and engineering;
  • Assist industries and government in North Carolina, nationally and internationally in their efforts to apply these nuclear technologies to the betterment of the economy and the environment – in a safe, effective, and innovative manner;
  • Enhance, promote, and utilize the PULSTAR research reactor and associated facilities in an exemplary manner, leading to national recognition as a premier 1 MW Nuclear Reactor Program dedicated to research, teaching, and extension.

In collaboration with representatives of the significant constituency groups, the faculty of the department developed the following educational objectives for the program in Nuclear Engineering. Within a few years after graduation, alumni of this program will attain:

  • A track record of solving technical challenges facing the field of nuclear engineering through the detailed process of engineering design and the advance of nuclear engineering practice and research
  • A reputation of adhering to the highest professional and ethical standards in the field, holding both the societal and environmental impact of their field’s practices in the highest regard.
  • Written and oral communication skills that are highly effective in a diverse, cross-disciplinary, and global community of colleagues and stake holders.
  • The professional responsibility of continued self-improvement and education through professional licensing, graduate and professional education, and continued lifelong learning.
