22.070 Materials for Nuclear Applications, 12; permission of instructor
Required Undergraduate Nuclear Science and Engineering Thesis
22.ThT Undergraduate Thesis Tutorial (minimum of 3 units); 22.09
22.ThU Undergraduate Thesis (minimum of 9 units), CI-M; 22.ThT
Departmental Program Units That Also Satisfy the GIRs
Unrestricted Electives
Total Units Beyond the GIRs Required for SB Degree
No subject can be counted both as part of the 17-subject GIRs and as part of the 192 units required beyond the GIRs. Every subject in the student's departmental program will count toward one or the other, but not both.
*Alternate prerequisites and corequisites are listed in the subject description. 
(1) The combination of 6.0001 and 6.0002 counts as a REST subject.
