Proposed contract for Nuclear Engineering Training
April 2, 1952
This contract details the proposed process of training students for participation in the Nuclear Engineering program. It includes selection of students, bugetary arrangements and courses of study.
April 2, 1952
It is proposed that North Carolina State College will undertake, under
contract with the Atomic Energy Commission to train 16 students for a period
of nine months in a selected series of courses in Nuclear Engineering.
- accomplished and the report presented within one year after the completion of the
course work in order for the degree to be granted.
Credit toward a graduate degree (M.S.or Ph.D.) will not be granted for work
performed in this program.
- f. Coordination with ORSORT:
In order for the training program at N.C. State College to be closely coordi-
nated with that at Oak Ridge, provision must be made for frequent contacts between
the two organizations. Also, if it is intended that students, after completion
of their course work at N.C.S.C., may subsequently be granted opportunity at Oak
Ridge to engage in work on selected problems suitable for presentation for credit
toward the Nuclear Engineering degree, the supervisory staff of N.C.S.C. will
need to make frequent visits to ORNL. To provide for these contingecies, it is
suggested that consultant contracts, providing for reimbursement of travel ex-
penses and a nominal consulting fee be drawn between the staff members involved
and Carbide and Carbon Chemical Corp. (or the A.E.C, if the latter is preferable).
- g. Renewal:
To justify the expenditure of time, money, and effort by N.C. S. C.
in providing increased staff, facilities, and equipment to accommodate the
increased enrollment occasioned by the acceptance of the A.E.C students, it is
suggested that an intent of renewal of this contract up to a total of not less
than three years be expressed. The renewal, of course, would be subject to ad-
justment in respect to the number of students involved in the program from year
to year, and to such other modifications as might prove mutually desirable.
