The University of Texas at Austin Cockrell School of Engineering

Power Plant Field Trip

The 2009 and 2010 groups traveled to the Comanche Peak nuclear power plant. In 2011 we will again hold a field trip to one of the two commercial nuclear power plants in Texas, Comanche Peak or South Texas Project. The trip will likely take place on Wednesday, July 20.  The staff at the plant will give us an excellent four hour tour featuring the steam systems, generators, turbines, pumps, cooling pools, and other engineering highlights.  The guides will make a presentation describing employment at a nuclear power plant and even help you take the first step in the recruitment process.
