NUC-380 Nuclear Rules and Regulations

This course examines national and international guidance organizations and the United States government rules and regulations that govern the protection of workers, the environment, and the public from both radioactive materials and machine produced radiation, throughout their life cycles. With the objective of presenting as holistic a regulatory picture as possible, the focus will be on the regulations that originate from the following agencies: Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC); Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA); Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); Department of Transportation (DOT); and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The regulations of each agency will be accessed and analyzed with the emphasis on "real-world" regulatory compliance scenarios.

Advisory: It is strongly recommended that you do not take any of the Nuclear Engineering Technology and Radiation Protection area of study courses unless your math skills, up to and including derivatives and integrals, are current. Students are responsible for making sure that they have the necessary knowledge.
