Going nuclear with UNSW

If the feds are keen to get cracking on local talent for the new submarine programme they could give the uni a call

UNSW has a cross-university research programme, four core courses covering reactor physics, the fuel cycle and nuclear safety, security and safeguards.

“By combining our core nuclear courses with others in the Engineering Faculty in naval architecture, electrical drives, mechatronics and systems engineering, and leveraging existing close partnerships with universities and national labs in the United States and UK, we are well-prepared for the challenge of educating a new generation of Australian naval nuclear engineers, nuclear programme head Edward Obbard told CMM yesterday.
