NE Student Profiles

Did you know that the RPI NE Program consistently graduates one of the largest classes in the country? So, it should come as no surprise that we have some pretty outstanding students with bright futures ahead of them, and that we want to showcase their accomplishments.


For these reasons, we have asked a few of our recent graduates to assemble brief personal bios so that you can get to know them and hear about their experiences in the RPI Nuclear Engineering Program.
