Engineering students intern at US nuclear testing company Grad Plus Friday, 08 July 2016 Four engineering students from the University of Sheffield have travelled to the US to take up internships at NuScale Power’s nuclear test facilities.

The undergraduates are based in Corvallis, Oregon, to learn about NuScale’s experimental work on small modular reactors (SMR), seen by some experts as a more flexible and cheaper option to mammoth nuclear developments, such as Hinkley Point in Somerset.
The fully-funded internships, which will end in September 2016, are being run in conjunction with Oregon State University (OSU).
Allowing Britain’s future engineers the opportunity to interact with NuScale’s world class test facilities is an important part of the partnership that the company is creating with the UK energy sector according to Tom Mundy, the organisation’s Managing Director for UK & Europe……..
NuScale will offer students the chance to gain hands-on experience in research, which will be vital for the development of SMRs in the future – this includes the application of lasers to analyse the performance of the company’s technology at the test facility.
The company has a range of links to the UK, including a collaboration agreement with the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre in Sheffield and working with the UK’s National Nuclear Laboratory on fuel development as it pushes the benefits of SMRs in both countries. http://www.gradplus.com/graduate-news/engineering-students-intern-at-us-nuclear-testing-company.aspx
