Nuclear Materials Safeguards - Manpower Needs.
Kanter, Manuel A.
Nuclear safeguard systems, their operation and implications for future manpower needs, and the need for these topics to be integrated into the engineering education curriculum, are focused on in this paper. The elements of a safeguard system and factors influencing the selection of a particular system are presented. Projections concerning the use of nuclear Power in the 1980's are cited as evidence of the need for engineering courses specializing in this area. The author states that while all engineering students should receive a "general orientation" to the topic, the low number of engineers electing nuclear materials safeguards as a profession will limit the feasibility of semester courses in materials and safeguards to a few institutions which are strong in the teaching of the nuclear fuel cycle and fuel management.
