· Sunday 15:00 18:00
Homeworks are due after one week unless otherwise announced.
Remarks or questions marked in red in the presentations without being announced as homeworks should be also seriously considered!
Some tasks can (or should) be sent by email.
Topics related to:
Reactor licensing and safety.
Uranium mining or other front-end fuel cycle elements.
Other topics that you would like to suggest ..
Notes on projects:
Please do your own thorough research on relevant topics you may find appropriate.
Final decision on the subject of your project should be taken before end of February.
Due date for written version is Sunday, May 6th.
Presentation date will be decided later.
