A Look at Nuclear Science & Technology

Field with Nuclear Towers in the BackgroundA Look at Nuclear Science and Technology is aimed at scientifically inclined individuals who want to learn more about nuclear energy and the nuclear power industry. It will address subjects such as: What is nuclear energy? What is its history? Who are its heroes? Why is it controversial? How do nuclear power plants work? What about nuclear weapons? What are the stereotypes and misconceptions? We expect many students who finish this class to want to go on for further study in a closely related field.

The course is taught by Professor Larry Foulke from Pitt Engineering. You can read more about the course, including the Syllabus and dates for the next offering, at the course homepage.
