Vols-Gators Rivalry Extends to Nuclear Engineering

In honor of Tennessee-Florida game week, the Nuclear Energy Institute has started a competition of its own to see which university’s nuclear program is tops.

In a post on its official blog titled Tennessee vs. Florida: Rivals in Football & Nuclear Energy, the organization details some of the successes of nuclear engineering at both schools as well as individual stories of students from the institutions.

The magazine then asks the question: “So who’s #1?”

The organization is conducting polling via Twitter.

Voters click to indicate which school they think is best, with the winner to be announced Monday morning.

U.S. News and World Report recently ranked UT’s nuclear engineering program the fifth best in the nation—and fourth among public universities—while Florida was eighteenth.

Voting takes place here.
