ARGONNE, Ill. – The Idaho National Laboratory is hosting a 10-day school this summer to provide early-career nuclear engineers with advanced studies in integrated modeling, experimentation and validation to prepare them for some of the key challenges and demands facing the nuclear energy renaissance.
The Modeling Experimentation Validation (MeV) Summer School is intended to fill a critical educational gap for engineers and applied scientists involved in the design, licensing and operation of 21st century nuclear power plants. The school is scheduled July 21-30 at University Place in Idaho Falls, Idaho, at the Center for Higher Education. It is sponsored by Idaho National Laboratory, Argonne National Laboratory and Idaho State University.
The school is being organized through the cooperation of national laboratories and universities that share the goal of building a strong workforce to support global nuclear expansion. The faculty will be drawn from the top experts in universities and laboratories. The general organization and conduct of the school will be overseen by an international board of senior experts. A local secretariat will provide technical, logistical and administrative support to students and faculty.
Cost of the school is $2,500 and the price includes room and board.
Detailed program information, registration procedures and the school application are available online. The application deadline is April 10, 2009 and acceptance notification will be given by April 30, 2009.
