Graduate Certificate in Nuclear Materials
- Fall January 10
- Spring July 1
- Pullman: Yes
- Tri-Cities: Yes
This certificate program provides formal academic coursework to engineers whose training is in a non-nuclear discipline or graduate students who wish to have an emphasis in this area. Students must complete a minimum of nine credits (of which six credits must be at the 500-level) from a specific list of courses found at http://www.mme.wsu.edu/grad/certificate.html.
In addition to the material required by the Graduate School, the School of MME requires a copy of the student’s resume and a statement of purpose.
This certificate program will benefit students who wish to pursue employment opportunities in the nuclear industry.
