AAS in Nuclear Power Technology

Great opportunity to start your nuclear education and training

Are you ready to begin your career in nuclear power, or would you like to further your career in the nuclear industry?

This online Associate's degree will provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary for a number of positions in the nuclear power industry, including employment as non-licensed operators, maintenance, chemistry, or health physics technicians. If you're presently employed by a nuclear station in a non-technical area, these courses are a great opportunity to expand your technical knowledge and background in nuclear power.

Professionals pursuing an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree will choose one of two tracks towards degree completion: Non-Licensed Operator or Instrumentation & Control.
