Nuclear Energy and Engineering High School Workshop

In its 50th anniversary year, the University of Texas at Arlington College of Engineering started a new program to offer a minor in Nuclear Engineering.  In order to promote this program and the other UTA engineering majors, the College will offer a one-day high school workshop on Nuclear Energy and Engineering. 

Intended for incoming high school juniors, seniors and students just graduated, this workshop will be offered Saturday, August 15, 2015.  The workshop will feature talks about nuclear energy and the field of nuclear engineering, a laboratory visit, and hands-on experiments to measure radioactivity in common materials.  Students will also learn about the electrical engineering and mechanical engineering majors at UT Arlington and how the nuclear minor fits with these programs. 

Each workshop is limited to 20 participants and the students will receive lunch and a T-shirt. For more information and to register for the Nuclear Energy and Engineering camp, contact Dr. Lynn Peterson,
