Basic Course in Nuclear
REPORT TO HOME:
Conference Will Open
For Frosh, Principals
By NORMAN MILLER
Plans for teaching a basic course
in nuclear engineering have been
announced by the College of Engi-
The course is designed for sen-
iors and graduate students and
will present an introductory treat-
ment of the applicatioxi of physics'
to the production of nuclear en-
ergy, according to i rof. Robert
White of the chemical and metal-
urgical engineering department.
"WORK ON nuclear engineering
is relatively new and requires the
coordination of men in numerous
engineering fields, therefore many
of the departmen'Ds of the engi-
neering college have cooperated in
the presenting of this course,"
Prof. White said.
Subject matter of the course
includes work o.xA electro-mag-
netic waves, radtioactivity, mea-
surement of nuclear disinter-
gration, biologial effects of ra-
dioactivity and the application
of nuclear reactors in power
"According to government au-
thorities there does not appear to
be a great demand for engineers
trained solely in this line of work."
AT THE PRESENT time it is
estimated that there will be only
70 openings a. year in government
activities conicerned with atomic
There is, however, a strong
likelihood that in the future
many more engineers will find
work in this field, Prof. White
Faculty members named as ad-
ministrators of the course are Prof.
Robert White of the chemical and
metalurgical department, chair-
man; Prof.. Frank Schwartz of the
mechanical engineering depart-
ment; Prof. Rauch of the aero-
nautical engineering department,
and Henry Gomberg of the elec-
trical engineering department.

both in Michigan and other states.
According to the Registrar's

2. To offer high school educa-
tors the chance to observe stu-

forming programs to prepare stu-
dents for college.
3. To aid the University in their
efforts to solve the problems
caused by the transition from high
school to college.
