Historically Black Colleges
Neutron activation analysis (NAA) remains an excellent technique to introduce undergraduate students to nuclear science and engineering coming from different academic areas. The NAA methods encompass an appreciation of basic reactor engineering concepts, radiation safety, nuclear instrumentation and data analysis. At the Nuclear Engineering Teaching Lab at the University of Texas at Austin, we have continued to provide opportunities through outreach programs to Huston-Tillotson University in Austin, Texas Southern University in Houston and Florida Memorial University in Miami Gardens, all Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Dr. Landsberger has an HBCU funded grant through the Office of naval Research to support such activities. The cornerstone of this program is to secure a relationship with each institution through clear educational and research objectives and goals.
