Students First: Nuclear Engineering at NC State

Join a department of firsts.

North Carolina State University was home to the first university-based nuclear reactor for teaching and research. Today we're the lead university in the unique Department of Energy-funded CASL initiative, which uses advanced computer simulations to create safer, more cost-effective nuclear power plants.

Nuclear engineers are in high demand. Our graduates are employed by utility companies, government energy and defense agencies, national laboratories, nuclear plants and private companies. Our teaching and research address such diverse areas as consumer and industrial power, space exploration, medical therapy, safety and transportation.
