GRADUATE EDUCATION ALLIANCE FOR TEACHING THE PHYSICS AND SAFETY OF NUCLEAR REACTORS

Project description

Teaching nuclear reactor safety

Nuclear power is a safe means of generating electricity and the risk of accidents is low. However, nuclear reactor safety remains a top priority. The EU-funded GREaT-PIONEeR project will develop specialised education in reactor physics and nuclear reactor safety for PhD and postdoc students, for nuclear engineers. It will include theory and hands-on training exercises. The aim is for the students to be able to perform nuclear reactor safety simulations understanding all the approximations on which such simulations rely. This is considered essential knowledge in the education of highly skilled nuclear safety analysts. The use of pre-recorded lectures and electronic teaching resources will allow students to learn at their own pace and get prepared for the hands-on training sessions. Those sessions, offered both on-site and remotely, will use active learning methods under the close supervision and support of the teachers, thus promoting student learning.
