Preparation for postgraduate course: What should I study before enrolling?

  1. May 4, 2012 #1
    Hello all, I was graduated with B.Sc. of Nuclear science and currently working as a NDT technician. I'm very much interested to further my study in MSc degree in Nuclear Engineering in the future, perhaps in 2-3 years time.

    And, I was thinking, before enroll in the graduate course, I might need to study and revise back some of my undergraduates textbooks and courses in preparation of the Nuclear Engineering graduate course.

    So, would like to ask for suggestion, what should I focus on, like, is it necessary to revise all my basic atomic/nuclear physics, high energy physics, nuclear and radiochemistry, nuclear electronics and instrumentation, reactor technology, plasma physics, etc etc...Or, do I need to start studying engineering subjects like thermal hydraulics, thermodynamics, metallurgy, fluid mechanics etc etc?

    What about maths? what skill would I need to focus on?
