2005-06 Undergraduate Catalog


Nuclear Engineering Sciences
College: Engineering
Degree: Bachelor of Science
Hours for the Degree: 123
Minor: No
Combined-Degree Program: Yes

This degree emphasizes the nuclear sciences rather than nuclear engineering. Typical emphasis or option areas are radiation protection (health physics) and engineering physics (plasmas, fusion, lasers). A student pursuing this degree must have a selected program, including option area electives approved in advance by an adviser.

Semester 1:

  • 2.0 UF GPA required semesters 1-5
  • 2.5 GPA on all critical-tracking course work for semesters 1-5
  • Complete 1 of 8 tracking courses with a minimum grade of C within two attempts (CHM 2045, CHM 2046 or approved biological science course, MAC 2311, MAC 2312, MAC 2313, MAP 2302, PHY 2048, PHY 2049)

Semester 2:

  • Complete 1 additional course with a minimum grade of C within two attempts

Semester 3:

  • Complete 2 additional courses with a minimum grade of C within two attempts

Semester 4:

  • Complete 2 additional courses with a minimum grade of C within two attempts

Semester 5:

  • Complete all 8 critical-tracking courses with a minimum grade of C in each course within two attempts

To remain on track, students must complete the appropriate critical-tracking courses, which will be bold.
