Module content
Lectures:

After the course the student should be able to explain basics of physics and techniques applied in nuclear reactors, selected nuclear reactor types, their constructions and safety. The reactors as sources of power and heat will be presented, including the concept of nuclear cogeneration dedicated for heat application in chemical processing, coal processing and synthetic fuel production and means of systems integration.
Simple exercises and their solutions will be used to illustrate the lecture topics.
The course consists of lectures and seminars.
The lecture subjects belongs to the following groups: 1. Nuclear specific issues; 2. Chemical specific issues; 3. Integration issues.
During the lectures students will be given opportunity to discuss selected problems and propose solutions.

Seminar classes:

Students will be given selected topics specific to nuclear cogeneration development based on completed and ongoing programs and will prepare presentations, which will be followed by discussion.

Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

Grading formula: FG=PMWFpres*PMGpres+ PMWFk*PMGk
Where:
• FG-final grade
• PMWFpres – presentation part weighting factor – 0,5
• PMGpres – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to presentation
• PMWFk– activity during classes and tests solution part weighting factor – 0,5
• PMGk – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to activity during classes and tests solution

All LO weighting factors associated with part of the module (PM) equal 1.

The overall assessment consist of two steps:
1. Assessment of fulfilling of module learning outcomes and OLOs.
2. Assessment and grading of the quality of students work.
EIT OLOs assessed in the industrial internship:
• Making value judgments and sustainability competencies (EIT OLO 1)
• Entrepreneurship skills and competencies (EIT OLO 2)
• Creativity skills and competencies (EIT OLO 3)
• Research skills and competencies (EIT OLO 5)
• Intellectual transforming skills and competencies (EIT OLO 6)
• Leadership skills and competencies (EIT OLO 7)
The Method of assessments indicated in point escription of learning outcomes for modulen icludes assessment of learning outcomes and OLOs
