THIS PHYSICS PRIMER IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PREPARATION FOR UN0802 Nuclear Reactor Physics

UNENE students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and may or may not have taken the undergraduate courses that are expected in all the areas covered by the UNENE graduate courses. To ensure you are prepared for UN0802, it is strongly recommended that you review and learn this material at the beginning of the course. Your professor will assume you have done so.

Administration

  • Format: Two day compressed workshop containing lectures and hands-on sessions. Saturday & Sunday October 1 & 2, 2016
  • Prerequisite: Undergraduate degree in engineering or science.
  • Location: Lecture Theatre, Durham College – Whitby Campus, 1610 Champlain Avenue, Whitby, ON
  • For students at remote locations, it is planned that this course will be offered as a live distance education course via Blackboard Collorate. You will need a high speed internet connection outside corporate firewalls, an inexpensive headset with microphone and, optionally, a webcam.

ABOUT THE PHYSICS PRIMER
