Program Description:

PLEASE NOTE THIS PROGRAM REQUIRES INSTRUCTIONAL TIME ON CAMPUS PRIOR TO THE INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE

Vienna Belvedere

This is a 15 day international experience based in Prague, Czech Republic where students will visit sites of technical and cultural interest.  The program will then travel to the IAEA in Vienna and finally travel back to the Czech Technical University in Prague for a one week reactor physics course. The reactor laboratory will consist of experiments on reactor operation, flux measurement, measurements of reactor parameters, using pool type reactor. 

 

Academics

Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive 3 credits in Nuclear Engineering 427 Honors.  Course learning outcomes are:

  1. Verify through experiment the predictions of reactor theory for the time-dependent behavior of the reactor in the subcritical state, the critical state and the supercritical state as well as the response of the reactor to reactivity perturbation
  2. Verify through experiment the predictions of reactor theory for the spatial shape and energy spectrum of neutron fluxes
  3. Measure neutron and reactor parameters
  4. Describe the extent to which analysis and experiment agree, and what approximations (analysis) or uncertainty (experiment) result in deviations between the two.

Excursions

This program contains excursions related both to the specific course content and those more fiocused on the rich cultures of Prague and Vienna..  Directly related to the course, students will visit the Rozna Uranium Mine and Temelin Nuclear Power Plant in the Czech Republic and the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna. 

Students will also enjoy several cultural excursions including:

 

  • a walking tour of the historic center of Prague
  • Prague Castle
  • St. Steven's Cathedral and Catacombs in Vienna
  • Belvedere Palace in Vienna

 

Vienna Nuclear Engineering

 

 

Accommodations

Students will be housed in double rooms in mid-range hotels in Prague and Vienna.
