TatjanaJevremovic Join on on October 21st as our own Dr. Tatjana Jevremovic presents her talk on, “About Nuclear Engineering Education & Training Programs and Connection to Chemical Engineering.” The lecture will take place in WEB L104 from 10:45-11:35am. All are welcome to attend.

This seminar will center around nuclear engineering education and training at the Utah Nuclear Engineering Program introducing the Minor in Nuclear Engineering and Graduate Program, our research and training using our research reactor. In summary, a prospective of the nuclear engineering discipline and its relation to chemical engineering will be outlined.

Short Biography
Professor Tatjana Jevremovic received her BS and MS degrees in nuclear engineering at the University of Belgrade, Serbia and worked as a project manager in Energoprojekt Co., in Belgrade (Serbia). From 1990 she hes spent 11 years in Japan where she firstly received her PhD degree form the University of Tokyo in nuclear engineering, and then spent additional two years as a professor. From 1996 she worked as Chief Engineer in Nuclear Fuel Industries, Ltd. where she developed a novel methodology for nuclear reactor physics assessments. The methodology is to date used in Japan during the BWRS’ relicensing processes. In 2001, she relocated to Purdue University, in Indiana and in 2009 she moved to the University of Utah where she holds a prestigious position of a Chair Professor and she is head of the Nuclear Engineering Program and the Director of a nuclear engineering facility that includes the 100 kW TRIGA and numerous state-of-the-art laboratories. She has published over 200 papers in journals and conferences, and she authored the book, Nuclear Principles in Engineering, published by Springer. She serves on many committees nationally and internationally, and she is a consultant to IAEA. Currently, she advises over 30 students in their individual research.
