NE 402 - Nuclear Engineering Laboratory

4 Credit Hours
This course is tailored to provide hands-on experience with nuclear engineering instrumentation and advanced computational simulations. It is focused on understanding the integration of modern engineering tools in computational modeling and measurement capabilities as applied to small scale experiments for use in nuclear security, nonproliferation, advanced nuclear reactors, subcritical assemblies and medical physics. The course is experimental- and computational-based and is intended to develop the student’s ability to understand, model and measure crucial nuclear engineering experiments. It acquaints the student with measurements of neutron fluxes, diffusion properties, neutron activation and thermal hydraulic characteristics. It advances the fundamental understanding of progressing from theoretical to experimental measurements through Monte Carlo transport simulations, unfolding analysis, system codes modeling and advanced computational techniques to process and analyze data.
