Program Description

The Research nuclear reactors: Physics and Technologies (RNR) program was established to contribute to research and education in the field of nuclear science and engineering. The RNR program is an education program that focuses on research nuclear reactors and prepares specialists for work in areas of homeland security, power generation, radiation transport methods, nondestructive imaging and detection, advanced nuclear materials, nuclear reactor thermal hydraulics, as well as nuclear safeguards and nonproliferation.  Many diverse opportunities await graduates of the RNR program as nuclear science and engineering continue to make major contributions to radioisotope production, non-destructive testing as well as radiation detection and measurement and nuclear non-proliferation. These opportunities will continue to grow as we face more challenges in radioisotope production and the expanded use of nuclear technology. The curriculum covers a variety of subjects including radiation interactions, particle diffusion and transport, reactor physics, thermal hydraulics, research and waste management, risk assessment, and radiation protection and dosimetry.  Students undergo practice in Resource Centers of the University (Volgodonsk, Novovoronezh, Obninsk). They become acquainted with the equipment of two nuclear power plants, the enterprise for the production of large-scale equipment, as well as the practice of research reactor
Career opportunities

Students are involved in cutting edge research in many different areas including high performance computing, code benchmarking, advanced research of nuclear reactors design, neutron transport methods and their application for simulation of real-life nuclear systems, reactor physics, advanced nuclear fuel design, and nondestructive testing and detection
