Title: Utah Nuclear Engineering Program: New Development in Curricula, Research, Training & Outreach


The University of Utah Nuclear Engineering Program (UNEP) is restructured, modernized and revitalized starting fall of 2009, with the goal to meet the expectations of the 21st century nuclear engineering education, research and development. Our focus areas are on nuclear power, nuclear forensics, advanced computational simulations, visualizations and modeling, nuclear medicine, and nuclear materials detection. UNEP houses a number of facilities providing unique opportunities to students and faculty. Our facilities include one of 13 left TRIGA research reactors, radiochemistry lab, radiation measurement lab, nuclear forensics lab, radiation detection lab, computer lab, microscopy lab, and BNCT lab. Our new curriculum is structured to assure our graduates will be highly-­‐ skilled, uniquely-­‐trained with hands-­‐on experience using our facilities, and prepared for jobs in nuclear power sector, nuclear nonproliferation, forensics and safeguards, nuclear medicine and radiation detection fields. An overview of educational, training, research and outreach programs will be provided.


Dr Tatjana Jevremovic, native of Serbia, received her BS and MS degrees in nuclear engineering at the University of Belgrade, Serbia, and her PhD degree in nuclear engineering at the University of Tokyo, Japan. She was a project manager in Energoproject Co. in Belgrade for 8 years, Chief Engineer in Nuclear Fuel Industries, Ltd. in Japan for 5 years; she was a professor at the University of Tokyo for 2 years, at Purdue University for 8 years. While in Nuclear Fuel Industries, Ltd. in Japan, she has developed a nuclear reactor lattice physics code for advanced simulations of nuclear power reactor performances. The code was selected to be included as a part of the BWR power plants licensing procedure in Japan. In 2001 she received a prestigious company annual award for that development. From 2009 she is Endowed Chair Professor and Head of Nuclear Engineering Program and The University of Utah, Salt Lake City. She authored a textbook, Nuclear Principles in Engineering published by Springer, that is used at a number of universities worldwide. She published over 150 conference and journal papers mainly in the fields of nuclear reactor physics modeling, radiation transport, nuclear medicine, nuclear forensics and nuclear engineering education.
