The Department of Nuclear Engineering is a four-year study that provides students with a solid knowledge in nuclear engineering. Students spend the first segment of their study in acquiring skills that serve as the foundation for later courses.
In the second segment students learn the fundamentals of nuclear engineering and gain knowledge in multiple related engineering topics including electronics, materials, and fluid mechanics.
In the third and final segment of their study, students take advanced courses in nuclear engineering, undergo an eight-week practical training, and complete senior design projects.
The Nuclear Engineering Program is the only program in the UAE that offers a BS degree in nuclear engineering. The program is committed to producing competent and highly-skilled engineers who are well prepared to work in the nuclear engineering field.
