Nuclear Power Generation Systems
This 16-hour minor prepares Auburn engineering students for careers specializing in the support and service of America’s nuclear power generation industry. Students who complete this minor will have demonstrated an understanding of the industry’s basic construction techniques, power plant models, integration into the national electrical grid and common reactor plant operations. Coursework for the minor will take place in the classroom as well as on-site at nuclear power generating facilities, and will be led by faculty and nuclear industry leaders. Areas of emphasis include: regulation, safety, reliability and dependability, radiological health and work control practices, and training requirements for operators and maintenance technicians.
