Course Description

This engineering course is designed to Introduce students to a range of concepts, ideas and models used in nuclear reactor physics. This course will focus on the physical theory of reactors and methods of experimental studies of the neutron field. This course course is based on the course “Neutron transport theory” which has been taught at the National Research Nuclear University “MEPhI” for the past 20 years.

Good course, some of the quiz questions were worded very poorly as far as the answer choices. More physics calculations and leakage equations would make the class slightly better. The material is overall very good, it went in a different direction than the Nuclear Physics courses I've taken previously.

it was fun and easy. computer glitched a bit and had to resubmit answers a few times to get them in the system but i think its the computer, not the website. idk.

The content is interesting, as it gives a good overview of the physics underlying nuclear reactor theory. While I appreciate very much that such a course has been created and offered in a MOOC setting, I sometimes had slight problems of understanding the instructor. Moreover, some quiz questions were not clearly or even incorrectly formulated - I know that English (and German even more) is a difficult language for Slavic speakers. Over all, I enjoyed this course very much.

I enjoyed this course. The instructor had a knack for bringing out the important factors and assumptions behind the equations, which would have been hard to follow otherwise. I feel I've learned the major qualitative regimes for reactor neutrons and the main drivers of behavior in each. My only suggestion is to have a native English speaker go over the phrasing of the quiz questions: for some of them I still don't understand what was being asked.
