The Nuclear & Radiological Engineering and Health Physics Program of the Woodruff School offers a certificate and a minor in Nuclear & Radiological Engineering to non-NRE engineering students. These programs provide a general knowledge of Nuclear and Radiological Engineering topics and are valuable for students considering graduate work in Nuclear Engineering or Medical Physics.
Program of Study
The NRE minor must comprise at least 15 credit hours, of which at least 12 credit hours are upper-division coursework (numbered 3000 or above).
|NRE 3301||Radiation Physics||3|
|NRE 3208||Nuclear Reactor Phys I||3|
|NRE 3316||Radiation Protection Engineering||3|
|Introduction to Nuclear and Radiological Engineering|
|Nuclear Radiation Detection|
|Nuclear Reactor Physics II|
|Nuclear and Radiological Engineering Design|
|Nuclear Criticality Safety Engineering|
|Light Water Reactor Technology|
|Radiation Sources and Applications|
|Radiological Assessment and Waste Management|
|Introduction to Plasma Physics and Fusion Engineering|
|Diagnostic Imaging Physics|
|Nuclear Chemical Engineering|
|Total Credit Hours||15|
- All courses counting toward the minor must be taken on a letter-grade basis.
- Each course used to satisfy the course requirements for a minor must be completed with a grade of C (2.00) or better.
- A maximum of 3 credit hours of transfer credit may be used to satisfy the course requirements for a minor. This includes courses taken at another institution or credit earned through the AP or IB program, assuming the scores meet Georgia Tech minimum standards.
- It is the major advisor’s responsibility to verify that students are using only courses from the designated block(s) from the student’s major field of study that are allowed to satisfy a minor program, that they are not using any Core Area A-E courses (including humanities and social sciences), and that they are not using any courses for more than one minor or certificate. Any free elective course used to satisfy the course requirements of the student’s major degree program may also be used to satisfy the course requirements for a minor.
