It is expected that students will spend 2 to 3 hours, minimally, outside of the classroom/laboratory performing course related work such as readings, research, homework assignments, practica, studio work, and other academic work for every hour of instruction spent in the classroom/laboratory.
Prerequisite: NUET 1000 or ELEC 1120.
This course covers the use of and relationship among typical drawings found at an industrial setting. Topics include using mechanical, electrical, and isometric drawings; the information contained in the lead sheet of a set of drawings; the use of notes and legends; standard symbology used in engineering drawings; and the use of various types of drawings together in order to perform work, locate components, or use for other typical applications.

Prerequisite: NUET 1000.
This course introduces students to fundamental components and pieces of equipment that are used throughout electrical power generating facilities such as pumps, valves, heat exchangers, motors, and generators. It also includes lubrication principles, fire barriers, hangers and snubbers, HVAC systems, and miscellaneous electrical equipment. In addition, the course covers the purpose, construction, theory of operation, and typical maintenance requirements of these devices. (3 contact hours) [Catalog Entry]
Prerequisite: admission to the Nuclear Engineering Technology program, MATH 1201 or MATH 1280, PHYS 1200; or permission of department chair.
This course presents basic concepts of thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid dynamics as they apply to power plant applications. It covers the topics of energy, entropy, thermodynamic cycles, and heat transfer. The course also discusses the basics of heat exchangers.
(6 contact hours: 3 lecture, 3 lab) [Catalog Entry] ADDITIONAL FEES: $16.00
Prerequisite: NUET 1100, NUET 1200, NUET 1300, NUET 2000, NUET 2300 (can be taken concurrently); or permission of program chair.
This is a capstone course that will utilize topics that were covered throughout the curriculum. A large portion of the course will examine case studies from the nuclear power industry. It will also examine case studies of incidents from other industries. The course will discuss precursors to poor decision making and how the proper use of human performance enhancement (HPE) and event free tools can minimize the risks of accidents.
