Nuclear Engineering Minor
Mechanical Engineering (ENME)
2181 Engineering Classroom Building, 301-405-2410
Contact Dr. G.A. Pertmer (email@example.com) for further information.
The minor in Nuclear Engineering provides the engineering student with the understanding of nuclear engineering and its application to many different fields, such as power generation, reactor operation, and industrial uses. Students in the minor will learn the fundamentals of nuclear reactor engineering, radiation interactions and measurement, power plant design concepts, and reactor safety. The minor is open to any student in the Clark School of Engineering.
To successfully complete the minor in nuclear engineering, a student must complete a total of 15 credits (5 3-credit courses). All courses must be completed with a grade of "C-" or higher. A maximum of two of the required five courses can be used to satisfy requirements of the student's major (with approval of the major department).
|All students pursuing the minor will be required to take the following four courses:|
|ENME430||Fundamentals of Nuclear Reactor Engineering||3|
|ENME431||Nuclear Reactor Systems and Safety||3|
|ENME432||Reactor and Radiation Measurements Laboratory||3|
|ENME472||Integrated Product and Process Development||3|
|Select a fifth course. Some possible choices include: 1||3|
|Special Topics in Mechanical Engineering 2|
|Fundamentals of Reliability Engineering|
|Radiation Effects of Materials|
The fifth course for the minor will be selected, with the help of the student's minor advisor, based on student interest.
Student would select an appropriate course from a number of special topics courses taught each semester in the Mechanical Engineering Department
Students who fulfill minor requirements will receive a notation on their official transcript.
