The future of the University of Wyoming is being driven by three Initiatives currently underway that will shape the look and culture on campus. Learn more about how the Top-Tier Science Initiative, Tier-1 Engineering Initiative and Trustees Education Initiative is going to impact UW and the state of Wyoming. The UW Science Initiative began in 2014 when Governor Mead and the Wyoming Legislature challenged the University of Wyoming to develop a plan to address outdated science laboratories at UW and improve the quality of instruction and research in the sciences. A task force, appointed by Governor Mead and informed by faculty representatives, developed a transformational vision for UW's core science programs in Botany, Zoology & Physiology, Molecular Biology, Chemistry, and Physics & Astronomy. The developed plan charts a clear course for these science programs to rise to top-tier status in the nation and builds upon Wyoming's STEM initiatives (the location of the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center in Wyoming, the construction of the Enzi STEM teaching facility, and the Wyoming Governor's Energy, Engineering STEM Integration Task Force). In May 2012, Governor Mead, the State Legislature and the Wyoming Governor’s Energy, Engineering, STEM Integration Task Force articulated a vision to propel the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) and the University of Wyoming (UW) to the realms of excellence in instruction, research and service. UW’s leadership, faculty and staff are committed to this vision; and equally important, UW’s industry partners have embraced this vision and will help actualize it. On March 5, 2014, Governor Mead and the Wyoming State Legislature approved biennium funding of $8 million for Phase I of the Engineering Initiative, in addition to $18.4 million for facilities development. To learn more, visit http://www.uwyo.edu/science-initiative/. Our Aspiration: A Tier-1 college is a nationally recognized institution of academic excellence and world-class research. The unambiguous goal of the Tier 1 Engineering Initiative is to elevate UW’s CEAS to national prominence in undergraduate education and selected areas of research, and to enhance economic development in Wyoming. To learn more, visit http://www.uwyo.edu/ceas/engineering-initiative/. The vision of the University of Wyoming Trustees Education Initiative (TEI) is to elevate the College of Education to the status of a preeminent college in professional educator preparation. The TEI Governing Board will receive recommendations from a TEI National Advisory Board and work groups comprised of Wyoming students, parents, educators, school leaders, state officials, and university faculty.

So giving them experience of actually what construction is like, to give them local role models to actually show them what opportunities there are at Hinkley Point C. Gemma It’s a lot different from everyday school work, we are out driving diggers and stuff and I thought - this is really good, I could get a future in this, and thinking I'm a bit further to getting into EDF now. Chloe Because it’s not just a men's thing, it’s definitely something that women can do and I think we need to get more women into it, because people think it’s something to do with men but it’s not. It could change what I want to do for my options, so if I want to go down the engineering route then I have to do triple science. Rebecca Griggs Science isn't really discussed as a career that much. Students have the understanding that you can be a Doctor, that you can be things like that - they understand that as a science role, but I don't think they have a clear understanding of what engineering could be for them. And obviously having gone to university I know there are loads of different engineering degrees you can do, but if you ask the students the same thing - they wouldn't have that idea. So I think this is something that needs to be discussed more. And obviously events like this help that and so this is brilliant. The EDF Energy Women Into Construction and Engineering Workshop is really good - they won't have had anything like that. Just the big display of the nuclear power station and how it works is fantastic Bronwen Webb And what's so good about the HPC project is that it’s not just about bricks and mortar for the girls, there are jobs from catering to logistics, to administration, to finance, to dealing with the public, to dealing with visitors - to doing absolutely anything. The world is your oyster girls so just get out there and come and join us. Meg Moore The Inspire Education programme is really important as an investment into the future, not only for EDF Energy but for the British nuclear industry, so engaging with young people who are in schools now, to be the future workforce for the nuclear industry is really great. Caitlin It’s been really helpful to find out about them and what they do, I know so much more about nuclear energy now. Kirsty I've learnt today in the workshop that there are lots of different jobs. It's not just boys who can do engineering. Because there are loads of different jobs you can do related to engineering. It's not just literally engineering on its own. Gemma . . . a sense of fulfillment knowing I have done something that not everyone has done. Alison Chapman It isn't just jobs for the boys in the local area. I really want to see the girls getting something out of this project and inspiring the future generations to work on the operational power station as well.

What is SAFETY ENGINEERING? What does SAFETY ENGINEERING mean? SAFETY ENGINEERING meaning - SAFETY ENGINEERING definition - SAFETY ENGINEERING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Safety engineering is an engineering discipline which assures that engineered systems provide acceptable levels of safety. It is strongly related to industrial engineering/systems engineering, and the subset system safety engineering. Safety engineering assures that a life-critical system behaves as needed, even when components fail. Analysis techniques can be split into two categories: qualitative and quantitative methods. Both approaches share the goal of finding causal dependencies between a hazard on system level and failures of individual components. Qualitative approaches focus on the question "What must go wrong, such that a system hazard may occur?", while quantitative methods aim at providing estimations about probabilities, rates and/or severity of consequences. The complexity of the technical systems such as Improvements of Design and Materials, Planned Inspections, Fool-proof design, and Backup Redundancy decreases risk and increases the cost. The risk can be decreased to ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) or ALAPA (as low as practically achievable) levels. Traditionally, safety analysis techniques rely solely on skill and expertise of the safety engineer. In the last decade model-based approaches have become prominent. In contrast to traditional methods, model-based techniques try to derive relationships between causes and consequences from some sort of model of the system. The two most common fault modeling techniques are called failure mode and effects analysis and fault tree analysis. These techniques are just ways of finding problems and of making plans to cope with failures, as in probabilistic risk assessment. One of the earliest complete studies using this technique on a commercial nuclear plant was the WASH-1400 study, also known as the Reactor Safety Study or the Rasmussen Report. sually a failure in safety-certified systems is acceptable if, on average, less than one life per 109 hours of continuous operation is lost to failure.{as per FAA document AC 25.1309-1A} Most Western nuclear reactors, medical equipment, and commercial aircraft are certified to this level. The cost versus loss of lives has been considered appropriate at this level (by FAA for aircraft systems under Federal Aviation Regulations). Once a failure mode is identified, it can usually be mitigated by adding extra or redundant equipment to the system. For example, nuclear reactors contain dangerous radiation, and nuclear reactions can cause so much heat that no substance might contain them. Therefore, reactors have emergency core cooling systems to keep the temperature down, shielding to contain the radiation, and engineered barriers (usually several, nested, surmounted by a containment building) to prevent accidental leakage. Safety-critical systems are commonly required to permit no single event or component failure to result in a catastrophic failure mode. Most biological organisms have a certain amount of redundancy: multiple organs, multiple limbs, etc. For any given failure, a fail-over or redundancy can almost always be designed and incorporated into a system.
