Fall 2015: NUGN598 “The Nuclear Fuel Cycle”

An introduction to nuclear energy emphasizing the science, engineering, and policies underlying the systems and processes involved in energy production by nuclear fission. Students will acquire a broad understanding of nuclear energy systems framed in the context of the fuel used to power nuclear reactors. Topics covered will include uranium mining, isotopic enrichment, the fabrication of nuclear fuel, fundamentals of nuclear reactors, recycle of nuclear fuel, waste disposal, nuclear proliferation, and advanced concepts for nuclear energy production and use.

Spring 2016: CHGN122 “Principles of Chemistry II”

Continuation of the Principles of Chemistry sequence concentrating on chemical kinetics, gas laws, thermodynamics, electrochemistry and chemical equilibrium (acid- base, solubility, complexation, and redox). Laboratory experiments emphasizing quantitative chemical measurements.
