This upcoming fall semester I plan on basically starting a B.S. in physics at NC State University. I have talked to a couple of post docs and professors, and they told me that maybe minoring in an applied area would be a good idea if I wasn't sure if I want to go to grad school after graduation. My school has a Nuclear Engineering program, and also offers a minor. Would it be worth my time/money to take 4 courses to obtain a minor in NE? The required courses for the minor are: NE 201 Introduction to Nuclear Engineering (2cr) NE 202 Radiation Sources, Interaction and Detection (4cr) NE 301 Fundamentals of Nuclear Engineering (4cr) and here are the electives(I need to take 2) NE 400 Nuclear Reactor Energy Conversion 2 (4cr) NE 401 Rector Analysis and Design (4cr) NE 402 Reactor Engineering (4cr) NE 404/504 Radiation Safety and Shielding (3cr) NE 409/509 Nuclear Materials (4cr) NE 412/512 Nuclear Fuel Cycles (3cr) NE 528 Introduction to Plasma Physics and Fusion Energy (3cr) note the last course. I could take that and it would go with my physics degree as a technical elective, so really instead of 5 courses outside the physics program, its 4. The courses sound kind of interesting in their own way. I don't plan on going into engineering, but I wouldn't mind getting a minor in it if it could help at all with career options.
