This e-book specializes in nuclear engineering schooling within the post-Fukushima period. It was once edited through the organizers of the summer time tuition held in August 2011 in collage of California, Berkeley, as a part of a collaborative software among the collage of Tokyo and UC Berkeley. stimulated through the actual relevance and value of social-scientific ways to varied the most important elements of nuclear know-how, unique emphasis was once put on integrating nuclear technological know-how and engineering with social technology. The publication contains the lectures given in 2011 summer season institution and extra chapters that hide advancements some time past 3 years because the twist of fate. It offers an enviornment for discussions to discover and create a renewed platform for engineering practices, and hence nuclear engineering schooling, that are crucial within the post-Fukushima period for nurturing nuclear engineers who must be either technically useful and depended on in society.
