Graduate Students

Welcome to the Department of Nuclear Engineering! These web pages provide information to help you successfully fulfill the requirements of your chosen graduate degree.

Students must fulfill all requirements of the university as well as the specific requirements of your degree program.

Graduate students have procedures that must be completed and deadlines that must be followed. We have included general outlines of the requirements for the Master’s Plan I (Thesis), Master’s Plan II (Non-Thesis), and PhD to help you proceed in an orderly and timely manner.

Towards the end of your degree program, you must complete a Departmental Intent to Graduate form that allows the department to place you on the university’s official graduation list. The School of Engineering holds its own Convocation Ceremony which is a graduation ceremony only for engineering students.

Remember that it is your responsibility to be informed of and to satisfy all requirements by keeping in close communication with the Coordinator of Program Advisement and the Director of NE Graduate Programs and by reviewing the information on the OGS website, in the UNM catalog, and in the department’s Graduate Student Handbook.

You can find details on the above topics and more in this section.
