Honors Nuclear Engineering - Radiological Concentration


In addition to satisfying the requirements described for the nuclear engineering major (radiological engineering concentration), candidates for the honors radiological engineering concentration must also complete the following requirements.

  • First-year courses for honors concentrations in the engineering majors. (Note: Most of the honors requirements are course substitutions for the nuclear engineering major.)
  • Two upper-division honors courses in nuclear engineering via Honors-by-Contract or Honors Independent Study. The contract or independent study must be submitted to the Chancellor’s Honors Program by the third week of the semester.
  • A minimum of 3-credit hours of an honors senior design course. This requirement is normally satisfied as part of their senior capstone design course (NE 472 ).
