UCOR wins Top Workplace award
United Cleanup Oak Ridge (UCOR), the lead environmental cleanup contractor for the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management (OREM), has been named one of the Knoxville News Sentinel’s “Top Workplaces” in eastern Tennessee for 2022. The award is the result of a confidential, third-party survey of UCOR’s 2,000-member workforce by the Knoxville News Sentinel and the survey company Energage.
The Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Department is the largest within Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) College of Engineering — offering an ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Nuclear Engineering. The department further offers a Master of Science (M.S.) degree and a first of its kind hybrid doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering.
All core courses are taught by highly skilled and talented individuals dedicated to each and every student. Their breadth of research expertise includes, but is not limited to: plasma physics for space exploration, nano-radioisotope for medical applications, neutron transports, thermal fluid science and molten salt chemistry for advanced reactor and nuclear fuel cycle, and nuclear safeguards for protecting our future safe and clean energy.
Students within the department have access to the latest, world-class tools and technologies via our academic and research laboratories. Research opportunities are readily available to both graduate and undergraduate students.
The VCU-Nuclear Engineering graduate program is now ranked 18th by the U.S. News & World Report for 2020-2021. We encourage you to visit our booth for more information about all our Nuclear Engineering program has to offer.
