Abstract

A mechanical & nuclear-engineering concurrent majors program has been developed at the Pennsylvania State University with the intent of increasing the interest and enrollment in the nuclear engineering area. The program closely integrates both the mechanical and nuclear engineering required courses into a logical sequence such that it requires only a slightly higher academic load during the semester as well as one additional semester of work. Upon successful completion of the program, the student receives two separate Bachelor of Science degrees, in nuclear and mechanical engineering. The program has gained significant popularity at Penn State with thirty-two students currently enrolled.
