This is a site for students and others interested in Nuclear Engineering, built when I was Professor in the
Department of Engineering Physics, McMaster University. I am retired now but still maintain the site. Suggestions and comments are
welcome. Enjoy. My short bio (pdf 9kb).

Seminar: The CANDU Program and AECL by Ben Rouben, AECL, Slides (pdf 2.9Mb), Recorded seminar (exe 55.6Mb) on 2007.01.11 at McMaster University. Listen to Ben's review of CANDU history, AECL's role, and current opportunities. Focused on reactor physics. Well worth the rather large download (sorry about that but it is the best we candu).
Seminar:Searching for a Sustainable Energy Future (pdf 51kb) by Dr. Patrick Moore (bio, pdf 84kb), co-founder of Greenpeace, currently Chair and Chief Scientist of Greenspirit Strategies. This is dynamite stuff. Burke Science Building, room B135, 2:00 to 3:30, March 29, 2006 (Wednesday). If you are not familiar with the campus, see here. You can listen to essentially the same seminar here.
