ABET Accreditation

The Nuclear Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission(s) of ABET under the General Criteria and the Nuclear and Radiological Engineering Program Criteria.

Student Outcomes

The department recognizes the following ABET engineering accreditation commission outcomes as its student outcomes. At the time of graduation, it is expected that each student has demonstrated the following:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Educational Objectives (PEOs)

  • Graduates who enter professional practice will demonstrate progression toward positions of technical responsibility or leadership in their discipline.
  • Graduates who pursue full-time graduate or advanced professional study will successfully complete their programs of study in their discipline.
  • Graduates will continue professional development practices that enable them to remain competent in the ever-expanding discipline of nuclear engineering.
