M.S. Nuclear Engineering
Admissions Requirements and Procedures
The minimum requirements to enter any of the graduate programs in nuclear engineering are: an undergraduate degree in engineering or closely related field from an ABET accredited U.S. program, does not include technical degrees; and a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale. GRE General Exam is recommended but not required for students with an undergraduate degree from a U.S. ABET accredited program. The GRE General Exam is required for all other applicants. TOEFL (minimum score: computer based 83, paper based, 560) is required for all students whose primary language is not English. All applicants are required to submit three letters of recommendation, a one- to two-page Statement of Career Objectives and a one- to two-page Curriculum Vitae/Resume. Applicants to the graduate programs are reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the program’s Graduate Committee. Some applicants who have a baccalaureate degree in a field other than engineering may be required to complete certain undergraduate deficiency courses before they will be allowed to take graduate level courses.
The M.Engr. is a non-thesis degree. A minimum of 30 credits is required; at least 18 must be in courses at the 500 level and the remainder may include 400 level courses in the major and 300 or 400 level courses in supporting areas. A non-thesis requirement must be met. Majors are offered in agricultural, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, mechanical, and (at the University of Idaho Center, Idaho Falls only) nuclear engineering. The prospective student should consult the specific department for special entrance requirements.
