An Overview

Nuclear engineering is firmly grounded in the understanding and application of modern physics. It has demonstrated vast potential for growth in power generation, medicine, industrial processes, plasmas, space technologies, and national defense.

Nuclear engineers at Purdue contribute to such advanced technologies as fission and fusion power generators, new medical technologies and procedures, improved food safety, advanced materials processing, advanced imaging, and the safe treatment and disposal of spent nuclear fuel.

Students experience the small-classroom feel because Nuclear Engineering has approximately 110 undergraduate students and 12 professors.

Indiana’s first and only nuclear reactor has its home in Purdue University’s Electrical Engineering Building. It headlines field trips for high-school juniors and seniors who participate in demonstrations and experiments.
