The large number of operating nuclear power plants has created a strong demand for specialists in radiological health engineering. Well-educated individuals are, and will be, required in all aspects of the nuclear power industry from mining all the way to disposal of wastes from spent fuel. There are needs for radiological health specialists in government, hospitals, educational institutions and in private industry. This program at Texas A&M is designed to give students a broad background so they will be able to assume positions in any area of the nuclear industry. The Texas A&M Radiological Health Engineering degree is the only one that is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation of ABET, Inc. (formerly Accreditation Board for Engineering [ABET]) in the United States.
