DNSE – Discover Nuclear Science & Engineering

Nuclear Science and Engineering is an exciting field of study where many of the traditional tracks of electrical, mechanical and systems engineering merge with both classic and modern physics. Therefore, as a major, Nuclear Science and Engineering is challenging but also rewarding as an academic discipline and in training for a career in science and engineering.

During the Discover Nuclear Science and Engineering pre-orientation program you will have the opportunity to learn about the multidisciplinary character of MIT education and to experience the research environment here at MIT. All activities are designed for incoming freshmen and will be presented by faculty and staff with experience in undergraduate education and research.

Our desire to introduce you to Course 22, both academically and socially, will not end with the completion of the four-day pre-orientation program. We would like to start with these pre-orientation activities and hope that they will become the motivation and basis for a long-term relationship between us. Our faculty, staff and current students are looking forward to meeting you in August.
