The third session will offer 10 advanced courses in nuclear engineering (one module per week) to be held in Saclay, France, during the period September-November 2009:

  1. Reactor Core Physics: Deterministic and Monte Carlo Methods
  2. Materials for Reactor Fuels and Structures
  3. LWR and FR thermal-Hydraulics, Fuel Design and Safety
  4. Experimental Validation and Calibration of Numerical Simulation Models
  5. Reactor Multiphysics and Fuel Management
  6. Bifurcation, Stability and Chaos in Nuclear Systems
  7. Nuclear Fuels for Light Water Reactors and Fast Reactors
  8. Fuel Cycle Back-End and Reprocessing
  9. Reactor Dismantling and Waste Management
  10. Experimental Nuclear Techniques

Lecturers are internationally known experts from leading universities and research institutes in the nuclear field.
