Nuclear Engineering

Topics covered include the nuclear fuel life cycle, fuel exploration and processing, nuclear power, fuel recycling, storage and waste remediation, radiation detection, and policy issues.

In This Guide

This research guide will get you started with data and information resources for learning and research in nuclear engineering, especially those collected and subscribed by the Arthur Lakes Library at Mines.

The School of Mines program in Nuclear Science and Engineering emphasizes the nuclear fuel life cycle. Subtopics include fuel exploration and processing, nuclear power systems production, design and operation, fuel recycling, storage and waste remediation, radiation detection and radiation damage as well as the policy issues surrounding each of these activities.

If you are off-campus and have difficulties with accessing our resources, please see the Off Campus Access guide page for help.
