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.
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. Students in the undergraduate program have an opportunity to work with the reactor in their courses.
