Nuclear Engineering Technology Overview

The nuclear engineering technology concentration is designed to prepare applicants for various activities in nuclear industry. Alcorn State University is perhaps the only university that is located within twelve miles of a major nuclear power station, and hosts one of the early warning safety stations on its campus. Nuclear engineering professionals traditionally are among the top university students and receive one of the highest salaries in engineering. Nuclear power generation, that is currently contributing 20% of the national electrical power, is an inevitable mixture for power generation for foreseeable future. Nuclear power is a prime candidate to provide fuel as society moves from gas-based economy to hydrogen-based economy and as such a graduate of this field is assured one of the highest salaries awarded in the technical field.
