As part of its ongoing commitment to developing the next generation of nuclear energy and health physics professionals, UniTech has once again sponsored a college student for a Nuclear Energy Institute conference in August.

Bryan Gaudette, a Three Rivers Community College student in Norwich, CT, is interested in pursuing a career in health physics. UniTech will pay the costs for Gaudette to attend the NEI’s Radiation Protection Forum August 2 through August 5 in Orlando.

Gaudette is in the final year of Three Rivers’ Nuclear Engineering Technology program. He plans to pursue undergraduate and graduate education in nuclear-related fields. Ultimately, Gaudette hopes to combine nuclear and medicine interests to study radiological treatments for cancer.

The four-day conference will provide opportunities for networking and learning about important nuclear energy issues. The event is geared toward nuclear professionals who wish to “discuss regulatory developments; get updates on industry activities; and share operating experience, lessons learned and best practices.” As an organization, NEI promotes nuclear energy and technologies internationally.
