This course is a study-abroad course that consists of two weeks of international experience. First, we will travel to various sites of technical and cultural interest in the Czech Republic, 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.

This is a unique opportunity offered to rising senior UT nuclear engineering students. We will visit:

  • Prague Castle and other cultural points of interest in Prague
  • Belviedier Palace and St. Stevens Cathedral in Vienna
  • The United Nations and IAEA in Vienna
  • A Czech Republic uranium mine and/or yellow cake facility
