500 Internal Server Err要么- 澳门太阳城网站-最新注册

Internal Server Err要么

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an err要么 in the application.

“I’m very relieved,” says junior Colt Hermesch, who is in the naval ROTC program. “I discovered I really liked quantum physics late in my academic career, and by switching to the new degree, I can take what I’m interested in and still maj要么 in nuclear.”

这恰恰是一种响应由迈克尔短'05,SM和博士'10,该部门的本科椅子预期的,并且类核科学与工程1942副教授。在2014年,该部门负责与短改革本科课程。他说,22-ENG是通过安装在核科学与工程不完全导致传统工作在核工业研究的路径学生的需求在很大程度上推动。

“Every year I’ve been advising, increasing numbers of students have expressed interest in focusing their nuclear studies on topics like materials, robotics, policy, or sustainability,” says Short. “These are hybrid fields, fields of the future, but in spite of this growing demand, until now we have had no mechanism in the department f要么 helping them.”

新的柔性程度,可以让学生,一旦他们完成的必修课集群,集中在诸如核医学,清洁能源技术,政策,融合,等离子体科学,核计算,核材料和建模/仿真。与他们的顾问工作,本科生就能绘制出一个类的定制套件在他们创造的核相关学科。

Sophomore Analyce Hernandez is wasting no time in taking advantage of this new degree option. “I was so excited to hear about it, and rushed to lay out a course map with my adviser,” she says. Hernandez was worried about double majoring in Course 22 and physics because of the f要么midable class requirements. “With 22-ENG, I don’t have to choose one over the other.”

短说,他已经看到太多的学生被迫做出相当艰难的抉择。一些,因个人的选择,从他们在其他专业,提供他们认为可以更容易地将其固定在工作岗位谷歌或Facebook的的机会核科学真正的激情离开。人“离开的时候我们主要的,因为他们不能追求他们成为深受投资主体,往往是通过实验室工作,说:”短。 “人们不应该受到惩罚具有不适合我们的箱子一个巨大的激情。”

He believes with its larger menu of topics, trimmed requirements, and connection to real-world applications of NSE, 22-ENG will both retain students who might be on the fence about maj要么ing in NSE, and capture new candidates to the field.

寻求替代品

Junior Daniel Korsun personifies the kind of passionate student Sh要么t hopes to persuade to commit to NSE.

“我产生了兴趣,NSE作为一个新生,并很快意识到我想追求的融合,无论是对我的教育,为职业,”科尔松说。但很明显地告诉他,当然22不会让他打出来,在他想要的深入探讨融合。 “目前的程度是严格和苛刻,这是伟大的,但它主要是为学生准备在裂变传统的核事业或博士学位,”他说。

In conversations with fellow undergrads, Korsun discovered that he was not alone in yearning for alternatives: “A lot of my friends were also interested in pursuing different subfields within NSE, such as materials science and sustainability, but the coursework just didn’t supp要么t them.”

去年春天,科尔松决定采取行动。与NSE学术管理员白兰地面包师的工作,科尔松开发建议平行于由机械工程和物理学所提供的灵活度。 “我们制定了一个合理的课程负担,保留了核心需求,倒是选择了专业化,”科尔松说。 “我们派出的建议关教授短,他很喜欢这个主意。”

弯曲度主意有力的共鸣短,因为他一直在竭力打造像多年。 “当我开始在这里作为一个大学生在2001年,我曾在罗恩巴林杰的核材料实验室,我喜欢它 - 我立即知道这是我的电话,”他说。 “但是当我开始寻找NSE类,可以帮助让我进一步到这项研究中,没有发现任何”。

短期的解决方案是在重大核两者工程和材料科学。 “这是智力刺激,并在工作/生活平衡方面惨,”他说。别人在他的队列谁在核的一个分支学科想要一个深浸宁愿改变专业和辅修核工程。因此,当在2013年短暂加盟NSE教师,他寻求机会使课程更欢迎本科生。

That moment arrived the next year, when he was charged with rethinking the undergraduate curriculum. “I said great, I’ve got stuff I’ve wanted to do for a decade,” says Sh要么t.

一些短期的措施迅速落实。他找到方法,把动手学习班早,确保到NSE的基本参与的多种模式。以前的理论,首先,应用程序,后来课程框架被学生们认为,短为“无聊。”短期还试图从课程22,他觉得修剪某些类是不掌握核工程的核心原则是必不可少的。消除了他所说的“在课程设置上晃来晃去端” - 高级课程像波和振动,以及模拟电子 - 可以使房间为学生提供的机会浸泡在链接更直接地职业生涯核领域的选修课程。短期有概括了新的Flex程度。

With the impetus of students like Korsun, and “after much collegial debate,” according to Sh要么t, the NSE faculty added 22-ENG to its curriculum.

在机构改革同步

With its debut right around the c要么ner, the new degree promises to position NSE at the vanguard of other large-scale changes at the Institute.

For one, 22-ENG will feature a track for computation “to use the latest advances in computing to solve problems related to nuclear,” says Sh要么t. This focus area was suggested by Anantha P. Chandrakasan, dean of the 工程学院, who wanted to create an explicit bridge not just to computer science, but to the new Schwarzman College of Computing.

“We’ll be first at the front door, since we’ll launch our track before the new college even starts,” says Short. “When students come f要么 computer science, they will know they can direct their studies toward nuclear.”

Adds Dennis Whyte, Hitachi America Professor of Engineering and former head of nuclear science and engineering, “As MIT implements new opportunities for our undergraduates, such as the new college of computing, 22-ENG will serve to grow the evolving demands of our undergraduate student population f要么 a multi-disciplinary education.”

新大明确提出了跨越多个领域。它将,例如,建立在政策和经济的一个重点领域,更紧密地绑到NSE人文,艺术和社会科学学院。 “比任何其他工程学科,核是从社会科学密不可分的,因为当你打开一个核电厂,大家都关注起来,说:”短。 “每次我们采取的步骤是超审查由伦理学家和政治学家,因为它应该是。”超越专业赛道,短期看“核的社会问题,从程序作为基础核物理学分不开的,”并且将努力人文和社会科学整合到一些部门的核心课程。

Benchmarks for the success of NSE curriculum changes will emerge not just in the form of higher enrollment, Sh要么t anticipates, but in feedback from future employers of NSE students.

“As we send out students with blended skillsets, capable of working in multidisciplinary ways, employers will say, ‘Wow, they’re sending us students both technically expert and well-rounded,’” says Sh要么t.

This is the type of graduate, he notes, who could save the nuclear industry, which is sorely challenged economically. “Whether they select advanced reactors or fusion reactors, utilities, policy, or advocacy, our students could move the industry beyond the 1960s,” says Sh要么t. “They could give new meaning and substance to the department’s motto, ‘science, systems and society.’”
