College of Science and Engineering
Richard Schultz, a 2010 graduate of ISU (Ph.D., Nuclear Science and Engineering), is the Professor of Practice in the Department of Nuclear Engineering at Texas A&M University. Schultz will teach a graduate level course entitled "Nuclear Safety" during the Fall, 2012 semester and will also interact with graduate students on various thermal-hydraulic experiments related to the behavior of advanced nuclear systems.
Schultz teaches Advanced Thermal-Hydraulics (NSEN6603) for the Nuclear Engineering Dept at ISU. He is on staff at the Idaho National Laboratory and has extensive experience in the nuclear engineering field. His career has focused on nuclear systems related thermal-hydraulics.
He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineer's Task Force on the Response to the Japan Nuclear Events. Their report, entitled: Forging a New Nuclear Safety Construct, was recently published and is available at the link: http://files.asme.org/asmeorg/Publications/32419.pdf.
Schultz graduated with a BS in mechanical engineering from the University of Florida and a MS in mechanical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
