About the Institute
Why Spend a Summer Studying Nuclear Engineering?
Admission to the Institute is a prestigious and rewarding accomplishment. To reflect this, a generous support package is being provided for each enrollee. You will receive room and meal plan credit in a campus dormitory via University Housing Services. In addition, you will be paid a stipend of $1200 and you won’t need to buy textbooks: we provide them to you at no cost. Finally, you will be reimbursed for travel expenses of up to $500.
The institute will offer an intensive, four week course of study during July and August of 2011. It's intended for undergraduates from outside of UT-Austin who are pursuing a degree in a discipline other than nuclear engineering (NE) as well as those who are working toward NE degrees at schools without a research reactor.
Our 2009 and 2010 institutes were successful and fun. Six faculty taught twenty-seven students in weekday morning lectures, early afternoon laboratories, and late afternoon homework and lab problem solving sessions. The students participating in our Institutes come to Austin from all over the country.Represented schools include:
