Minor Program Requirements

Three minors are offered within the Nuclear Engineering academic curriculum to provide students the opportunity to obtain education and training in the nuclear sciences: Nuclear Engineering; Medical and Health Physics, and Radioenvironmental Sciences. Each minor requires a minimum of 15 credits of course work. As background preparation, the Nuclear Engineering minor requires math through differential equations and two semesters of calculus-based physics, and the other two minors the student has had the prerequisites of a minimum of college algebra and two semesters of college physics...
