Reflections on the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident: Toward Social-Scientific Literacy and Engineering Resilience


This ebook specializes in nuclear engineering schooling within the post-Fukushima period. It was once edited by way of the organizers of the summer season tuition held in August 2011 in college of California, Berkeley, as a part of a collaborative application among the college of Tokyo and UC Berkeley. inspired through the actual relevance and value of social-scientific ways to varied an important facets of nuclear expertise, targeted emphasis used to be put on integrating nuclear technological know-how and engineering with social technology. The ebook involves the lectures given in 2011 summer season tuition and extra chapters that conceal advancements some time past 3 years because the coincidence. It presents an area for discussions to discover and create a renewed platform for engineering practices, and hence nuclear engineering schooling, that are crucial within the post-Fukushima period for nurturing nuclear engineers who must be either technically efficient and relied on in society.
