This roadmap emphasizes NSE applied to plasma physics and fusion energy with a double SB major in course 22 and 8 (flexible option). Through course-sharing of the two departments this is a very "efficient" double-major with respect to class-loading.
Course/electives are suggested that provide multi-disciplinary depth in fusion and plasma physics. UROPs among fusion faculty and at MIT's Plasma Science and Fusion Center are highly encouraged.
