This is the only program of its kind in New England, one of three in the country, and considered the best in the nation. Through classroom, laboratory, and simulator instruction, this program will educate you in the theories underlying the safe operation of nuclear power generating stations. Additional “hands-on” experience may be gained through 12 weeks of summer co-op employment at Millstone Station’s nuclear power plants. This program operates in cooperation with Millstone Station to prepare you as an entry-level technician primarily for the commercial nuclear power industry. Millstone Station offers full scholarships through the college for up to 15 full-time freshmen enrolling in the Nuclear Engineering Technology program. However, the program is open to all qualified students, with or without scholarship aid. This career path involves further training by the utility and successful completion of a license examination administered by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. For many students, the Associate Degree in Nuclear Engineering Technology is but one step in their academic career as they move on to pursue higher degrees upon graduating from Three Rivers.
Dominion’s Millstone Power Station has a long-standing partnership with Three Rivers Community College. Dominion produced this video and sponsors multiple scholarships to our award winning nuclear engineering program.
Dominion Nuclear Connecticut supports promising candidates for this Nuclear Engineering Technology program through its Dominion Nuclear Connecticut Millstone Power Station Engineering Technology Scholarships.
Up to sixteen two-year scholarships are awarded annually and cover the full cost of the program including tuition and fees, books and a monthly stipend.
To be accepted into the Nuclear Engineering Technology degree program, students must meet the specific admission requirements along with other factors. Learn more and download the Technology Energy Scholarship Application here. Scholarship application deadline is February 15.
