MODIFY DEGREE REQUIREMENTS
Replace the current seminar requirements for the student to take MP 8011 and MP 8012 with two new seminar courses MP 7011 and MP 7012 for master’s level students.
This change is requested to avoid confusion with the already existing seminars in the Woodruff School NRE 8011, NRE 8012, ME 8011, ME 8012 which are used for the PhD degree programs as a non-credit requirement for PhD candidates.
MP 7011 Seminar in Medical Physics I 1-0-1
MP 7012 Seminar in Medical Physics II 1-0-1
(Note: The descriptive title on the new course proposal form should read “Seminar in Medical Physics II”.)
NRE 6759 Radiation Shielding Principles and Analysis 3-0-3
MP 6759 Radiation Shielding Principles and Analysis 3-0-3
(Note: Cross-listed courses.)
MP 6403 Applications of the Monte Carlo Method in Medical Physics 3-0-3
Note: The Committee suggested that 6000-numbers might be more appropriate for all of these courses and that the MP course numbers should be changed. The proposers agreed and will work with the Registrar to select different numbers.
NRE 6105 Radiation Shielding Principles and Analysis
Elimination from the Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering, the specializations of: Optimization and Stochastics.
(Note: these two specializations are now contained within the Ph.D. in Operations Research.)
The addition of a new specialization within the Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering: System Informatics and Control
ISyE/PUBP 6701 Energy Technology and Policy 3-0-3
ISyE 6810 Systems Monitoring and Prognostics 2-3-3
