NE 50th Celebration
NE 50th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
FOUNDING OF THE SCHOOL OF NUCLEAR ENGINEERING 1962
Georgia Tech will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the School of Nuclear Engineering on November 1-2, 2012 with a Reunion which features a "Symposium on the Future of Nuclear Energy" and a "Colloquium on the History and Contributions of NE at Georgia Tech".
The intent of the "Symposium on the Future of Nuclear Energy" is to bring together leading authorities from government, industry, research laboratories and academia to address the future of nuclear energy. Sessions are planned on i) Nuclear Energy in the Near-Term, ii) Closing the Nuclear Fuel Cycle, and iii) Nuclear Energy in the Future.
The intent of the "Colloquium on the History and Contributions of NE at Georgia Tech" is to collect and document the history of NE at Georgia Tech and the contributions of Georgia Tech NE alumni and faculty in all those areas of nuclear engineering which have been part of NE at Georgia Tech over the years---i) the physics and engineering of producing power from nuclear fission and nuclear fusion and ii) applications of that technology to health physics, radiological engineering, medical physics, nuclear security, etc.
Further announcements and information about the NE50 Celebration will be posted on this website.
In order that we may collect the information necessary to plan the Colloquium, we are requesting that all alumni, former and present academic and research faculty members, post-docs, etc. of NE at Georgia Tech fill out and submit the linked Biographical Form as soon as possible. We also ask that you forward information about the NE50 Celebration to any other Georgia Tech-NE alumni, former faculty, etc. with whom you are in contact.
We look forward to seeing you in November and hearing from you as soon as possible.
