Undergraduate Minor in Nuclear Engineering


In Fall 2019, the VT Nuclear Engineering Program established a Minor in Nuclear Engineering for students enrolled in Engineering or Science disciplines. The purpose of this Minor is two fold:

1. Provide a more thorough foundation in nuclear engineering.

2. Prepare the engineering or science students for a career in the nuclear industry or for graduate studies in nuclear engineering.
