EUGENE, Ore., Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2016 ranking for the Best Bachelor's in Nuclear Engineering.
Nuclear engineering is a complex field that requires dedicated professionals in order to help improve energy sources and invent new technologies. This, of course, means that the industry needs new and educated nuclear engineers, making this ranking very important.
"One of the most important problems nuclear engineers are currently working on solving is how to produce sustainable, renewable energy from non-fossil-fuel sources," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said of the ranking. "But nuclear engineers can be found elsewhere too, including in the medical field, where radiation technology has been used in cancer treatment."
College Choice created the 2016 ranking for Best Bachelor's in Nuclear Engineering using a few key factors, including annual tuition, program features, internship opportunities, available financial aid, academic reputation, and more. This information was researched using a variety of publicly available resources, including PayScale.com, individual school websites, and the National Center for Education Statistics.
