ISU, South Dakota State join to offer expedited physics/nuclear engineering degree

Here’s a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Officials with Idaho State University and South Dakota State University say a new agreement between the two institutions will help students earn an advanced nuclear engineering degree in just five years. The memorandum of understanding reduces the time to earn a bachelor's degree in physics and a master's degree in nuclear engineering by one year. The new plan has no expected costs because the expenses will be covered through the students' tuition. Idaho State University Provost Laura Woodworth-Ney says students will spend the first three years in South Dakota for their physics education and then another two years studying in Idaho to receive a masters in nuclear engineering. School officials discussed the new plan Thursday during the Idaho State Board of Education meeting in Twin Falls.
