RPT-271 Radiation Biology

This course analyzes the multidimensional aspects of understanding and minimizing the effects of radiation on humans. Students will explore the basic theories associated with radiation exposure and the need to programmatically assess and minimize the potential biological insult. Learners evaluate the foundational tenets of the legal aspects of radiation exposure and the role it plays in personnel and public safety.

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.
