American Nuclear Society
What is the American Nuclear Society?
The American Nuclear Society is an international not-for-profit organization consisting of more than 17,000 engineers, scientists, educators, students, and others with nuclear related interests. These individuals represent more than 1,600 corporations, educational institutions, and government agencies - approximately 1,200 members live overseas in 40 countries.
The course schedule is published just before advising and registration begin for each semester and summer session. An on-line editions list the courses to be offered each semester, including time, location, and instructor if this information has been submitted to the Office of the Registrar. They also give the unique number for each class, which students must know in order to register, and other essential registration information and instructions. The on-line edition is updated immediately as changes are made to the semester's course offerings.
The University is moving toward on-line-only publication of the course schedule.
Ph.D. Qualifying Exam
The Nuclear and Radiation Engineering Ph.D. Qualifying Exam format will consist of three separate areas: Reactor Theory, Health Physics and Instrumentation, and Interactions. There will be a written and oral component for each of the three area exams.
Graduate Student Reviews
All students will be given a written evaluation within the first two years of starting the Nuclear and Radiation Engineering (NRE) program. A student must have an average ranking of satisfactory or above in order to take the Nuclear Radiation and Engineering Ph.D. Qualifying Exam.
