NUC-412 Radiation Biophysics

Radiation Biophysics is designed to give students an overview of radiation interactions with living systems. It progresses from an explanation of physical interactions to the biological effects of these interactions. Finally, it deals with the late effects of ionization radiation.

Advisory: It is advisable to have National Registry of Radiation Protection Technologists (NRRPT) Certification or courses in nuclear physics and radiation biology and a working knowledge of calculus, physics, chemistry, and biology. 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.
