Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
Introduction to nuclear energy. Topics include radioactivity, radiation detection, interaction of radiation with matter, nuclear reactions, fission, fusion, nuclear reactors, radiation safety and protection, and laboratory measurement of nuclear radiation.

CSC requirement for NE 202 has been removed (it remains a requirement for further NE courses).

MA 242 was incorrectly removed as a prerequisite.

PY 208 remains as a requirement.

A grade of C- or better is required for both MA 242 and PY 208.
