This California institution became a catalyst of economic growth and social innovation — the place where vitamin E was discovered, a lost Scarlatti opera found, the flu virus identified, and the nation's first no-fault divorce law drafted. Scholars at Berkeley have conducted groundbreaking research on urban street gangs and on basic human nutritional requirements, identified why wartime supply ships were failing at sea, invented technologies to build faster and cheaper computer chips, and imaged the infant universe.

The Berkeley Master of Engineering Program curriculum integrates engineering coursework with classes in leadership and core management concepts. You tackle actual industry challenges through case studies and your capstone project.

Nuclear Engineering has re-emerged as an exciting and vigorous field for graduate study. Energy and energy policy are now nationally visible topics, and research in fission and fusion energy is growing with new efforts toward the development of Generation IV fission reactor systems and work in magnetic and inertial confinement fusion under the DOE Fusion Roadmap. UC Berkeley leads in these fields, as well as in radioactive waste management and applications of nuclear science and technology such as the design of methodologies and systems to counter the possible transport of clandestine nuclear materials, and applications in the biomedical and radiological sciences. We advise digging into the UCBNE web site, since the most interesting information on the current activities in the department can be found in the home pages of the faculty and research groups.
