Nucl. 3200 - Radiochemistry (undergrad. lvl. - 3 cr.) Offered yearly, Spring Semesters
Radiochemistry is almost non-existent in US and sporadically found around the world. The renaissance in nuclear engineering around the globe including the US, points toward its revitalization supported by major nuclear agencies and vendors. This course will give the students understanding of what the radiochemistry is, where to apply, and how to become a radiochemist.

Nucl. 4000 - Nuclear Lab (undergrad. lvl. - 1 cr.) Offered yearly, Fall Semesters
In the Nuclear Laboratory, students will gain hands-on experience studying the fundamental interactions and detection of radionuclides. Emphasis will be placed on learning and exercising skills and practices typical of a nuclear/radiation laboratory.

Nucl. 6030 - Radiation Interactions (grad. lvl. - 3 cr.) Offered
every other year, Fall Semesters
This course will provide students with a fundamental understanding of basic principles covering the modern theory of the atomic and nucleus structure, quantum description of nuclear processes, interactions of radiation with matter, and radioactive decay. Special emphasis will be placed on understanding the scattering and attenuation of neutrons, photons, and charge particles.

Nucl. 7100 - Radiation Detection and Lab (grad. lvl. - 4 cr.) Offered every other year, Spring Semesters
This course will primarily be a hands-on laboratory study of radiation detectors, associated physics, and techniques with classroom instruction. The focus of the course is on the physical principles, characteristics, operation, and application of radiation detectors, and the understanding and manipulation of their electrical signals, along with knowledge of spectroscopic outputs. The lessons of this course will explore, down to the fundamental level, the generation of a signal within various detector types, propagation and manipulation of the signal by analog methods, and the analog-to-digital conversion and subsequent signal processing.

Nucl. 7920 - Radiation Effects on Electronics (grad. lvl. - 3 cr.) Offered every three years, Spring Semesters

This class provides a detailed understanding of how ionizing radiation impacts electronics on a fundamental level. In this class, we explore the nature of radiation effects on individual electronic devices. Basics of radiation interaction with matter and operation of semiconductor electronic devices will be covered, from which we explore the effects, damage, and malfunction of electronics irradiated by a variety of ionizing radiation sources.
