STARS - Education and Training
The STARS team is committed to the Education and Training of young nuclear scientists, engineers as well as professionals. Thereby, STARS is involved in Teaching activities within the national joint EPFL/ETHZ Nuclear Engineering Master Program and offer students, the opportunity to conduct Master and PhD theses as well as Trainee and Practicum projects, noting that Guest Scientists can also visit STARS for trainee and/or further education programs.
Master Theses and Trainees
See here on-going as well as past PhD Theses.
Teaching and Lectures
Some of our members are involved in the ETHZ/EPFL nuclear engineering master program as follows:
Special Topics in Reactor Physics at EPFL
The primary responsibilities of the Laboratory for Reactor Physics and Systems Behaviour (LRS) at EPFL are teaching and research related to nuclear energy at the masters and doctoral levels. A wide range of R&D topics related to both operating and advanced nuclear power plants are being pursued by the LRS research teams at both EPFL and PSI.
Nuclear Engineering Master Course at PSI
The Master Course of the 3rd semester of the Nuclear Engineering Master is taking place at PSI. Several people of LRT give lectures in different fields and topics.
Nuclear Computations Lab
This block is to acquire hands-on experience with the running of large computer codes in relation to the static analysis of nuclear reactor cores and the multi-physics simulation of nuclear power plant (NPP) dynamic behaviour.
