Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering


It is a unique undergraduate course in nuclear science and engineering available to students. No other Institution offers such a course at undergraduate level. India has set a target to achieve more than 20000 MWe in Nuclear power by 2020. In this field India is self reliant. The recent interest of other nations to have nuclear agreements stems from the fact that today India is considered as a fully developed nuclear power. With nuclear renaissance taking place, other countries need skilled manpower to build and operate nuclear power plants. With so many nuclear plants and increased application of Nuclear science in medicine, agriculture, non destructive testing and host of other applications, this university has foreseen the need for Nuclear expertise not only in India, but other countries like USA, France etc.

Curriculum :

The Course covers besides the Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Basic Engineering in all principal disciplines, engineering graphics, workshop, Neutron Physics, Nuclear Thermo Hydraulics, Materials for Neutron Applications, Reactor Theory, thermonuclear Fusion, Molecular and Cell biology, Biological effects of Radiation, Nuclear Fuel cycle and offers electives in Reactor Safety, Medical Informatics, Engineering of Nuclear Power systems, High Intensity Laser plasma Interactions and Operations research.

Courses Offered :

=> B.Tech Nuclear Engineering
=> Ph.D Nuclear Engineering

Opportunities :

Students studying in nuclear engineering become true multi-disciplinary specialists since the curriculum is a joint venture of mechanical, physics, chemical, biotechnology and electrical engineering departments. Those who graduate today enter an expanding job market in industry, national laboratories, government and academia, where one can work on problems that will have large impact on our future environment, security, health and safety.

Laboratories & Facilities :

Experiments may be run by a collaborative effort. A powerful suite of computers is available for data analysis within the department. Students are involved in development and use of advanced particle transport methods, multigroup cross-section generation techniques, reactor physics and perturbation methods, thermal hydraulics, nondestructive testing techniques and tools, advanced fuel design, robotics, radiation shielding and protection, simulation methodologies for real-life nuclear systems including reactors, medical devices, and radiation facilities.

Industrial Projects :
