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

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


This publication makes a speciality of nuclear engineering schooling within the post-Fukushima period. It used to be edited through the organizers of the summer season tuition held in August 2011 in collage of California, Berkeley, as a part of a collaborative application among the college of Tokyo and UC Berkeley. inspired via the actual relevance and value of social-scientific methods to varied an important features of nuclear know-how, specific emphasis was once put on integrating nuclear technology and engineering with social technological know-how. The publication comprises the lectures given in 2011 summer season tuition and extra chapters that disguise advancements some time past 3 years because the coincidence. It presents an enviornment 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 depended on in society.
