My Degree Path
#1
I really haven't seen much on the Degree paths available to those that are serving or that have served, so I decided to put my 2 cents in and post my degree path through TESC up. Please note that I did retake CALC I even though I had credit for it already from my training in the Navy. I did this to refresh me for CALC II. Also note that I could have tested out on pretty much all of the Gen Ed classes I took through Coastline, but I had to do it the way I did because this is pretty much the only way to take classes out to sea on a submarine. Hope it helps

Thank you for sharing your degree plan. I recently had Ms. Colburn send me an unofficial evaluation for this degree. I now have a renewed interest in it after seeing Fundamentals of Nuclear Engineering under Thermodynamics, Hydraulics under Fluid Mechanics, and Radiation Safety under Radiation Analysis Lab. Courses for those areas were only listed as being "under development" at TESC, and I had resigned myself to just finishing my current plan since I haven't been able to find online courses to fill these requirements.

Thanks again. I'm off to search for online courses in Fundamentals of Nuc Eng and Hydraulics (or other possibly appropriate courses).

Your degree plan looks good! Do you mind if I post it at Degree Forum Wiki under TESC Degree Plans, or would you like to do it yourself?

IrishJohn thanks a lot. I don't mind if you post it at all.

wmpancho, I would definitely recommend the degree since it is ABET accredited, which may allow you to get into a decent MS program. Let me know if you need any other assistance. I have to warn you though, the capstone for this degree is insane. I looked over a sample project and I can say that I am substantially intimidated.

All done. Thanks, Shipmate, this is the first Nuke degree plan I've seen here so had to add it to DF for others in case it can help them with their own plans. Smile

It's a pleasure to help out. I know I was very confused when I first started on my path to a diploma. Hopefully this can alleviate some of the frustration for others.

I took a look at the post up on Wiki and it looks good except that it's a BS and not a BA. I think I corrected most of the BA's to BS's except for one which I couldn't figure out how to change.

Sorry about that. I couldn't change the title of the page so I just created another one. Perhaps the administrator of DF Wiki can delete the old page.
