Class about nuclear science offered at MU

Thursday, April 28, 2005 | 12:00 a.m. CDT; updated 8:10 p.m. CDT, Tuesday, July 15, 2008

Starting in the fall, a new introductory nuclear science course, Utilization of Nuclear Technology in Society, will be offered at MU.

The Nuclear Science and Engineering Institute was able to introduce this course with money from the $1.4 million grant it received from the Department of Energy.

This three-hour course, offered primarily to sophomores and juniors with a strong science background, has not yet reached its capacity of 20 students.

William H. Miller, who will teach the course, will focus on nuclear applications such as remote power, medicine, industrial applications and sterilization.
