All graduate engineering applications will be submitted using EngineeringCAS, a centralized application service.

Program Requirements

The doctoral degree requires students to complete 64 hours with a master’s degree, and students without a master’s degree will need to complete the 96-hour degree plan. A doctoral candidate together with his or her graduate committee must develop a degree plan that upon completion will demonstrate mastery of advanced knowledge and skills in the chosen area of emphasis. The chosen area of emphasis can be in any of the five research areas

  • Computational methods development
  • Medical physics, radiation biology and  health physics
  • Nuclear fuel cycles and materials
  • Nuclear power engineering
  • Nuclear security and nonproliferation

View Current Program Requirements

Students must provide justification for listing 1- or 2-hour courses on their doctoral degree plan. Also, undergraduate courses cannot be listed as a part of the degree plan. Students must also pass the department’s qualifying examination to continue in the program as a doctoral candidate. Visit our Qualifying Exam page for more information.
