    Guest access
  • Introduction to Nuclear Power Plant, Water Chemistry for Nuclear Power Plant, Material Science, Electrical Science, Mechanical Science, Civil Engineering for Nuclear Power Plant Engineers, Digital Process Control Systems.

    Self enrolment
  • Cal Poly students only Introduction to Nuclear Power Plant, Water Chemistry for Nuclear Power Plant, Material Science, Electrical Science, Mechanical Science, Civil Engineering for Nuclear Power Plant Engineers, Digital Process Control Systems.

  • The course introduces students to the following concepts:

    • Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) Core Systems: the systems unique to the PWR for control of the fission process and the associated systems and strategy for reactor safety.
    • Power Plant Generation: the balance of plant equipment used in the steam cycle.

    This course ensures that students understand engineering principles associated with systems and components used in two types of commercial nuclear power plants. The course meets the requirements of the National Academy for Nuclear Training standards (ACAD) for engineers in the nuclear industry.

  • The course is divided into six modules: Human Performance Fundamentals, the Organization & the Processes, the Individual Worker, the Engineer, Corrective Action Programs and Root Cause Analysis, and numerous Case Studies including TMI-2, Chernobyl and Davis-Besse.

    Self enrolment
  • Overview of mass, momentum and energy conservation as it relates to nuclear power plants; includes coupled neutronic/thermal models to study plant operations semi-quantitatively achieving an integrated plant understanding.

The Nuclear Power Institute (NPI) is developing the human resources and preparing the workforce for the current nuclear power plants and the potential new reactors to be built in Texas and around the country. These vital workforce needs are being met through a broad partnership with industry, two year community and technical colleges, four year universities, high schools, middle schools, science and math teachers, state government, Federal agencies, and elected and civic leaders.
