"Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted."
Our Nuclear Technology program is in partnership with GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy and Granite International and is designed to prepare students as nuclear maintenance technicians during outages at power plants with GE nuclear steam supply systems. Students enter this program in either the Fall or Spring semesters and complete five semesters of academic work in a well-rounded selection of courses in math, sciences, and humanities, including courses in reactor physics and boiling water reactor technology. An additional co-op semester provides students with work-based learning during plant outages at sites throughout the US plus specialized training on a full-scale mockup of a boiling water reactor at GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy facilities in San Jose, California. Students are awarded an Associate of Applied Science degree in Nuclear Technology.
