Nuclear engineering students win AREVA-Canberra film contest

Students from the Department of Nuclear Engineering at Texas A&M University won first place at the Canberra University Video Challenge. Their video highlights examples of students using Canberra products in their classes and research in radiation detection. A variety of products are shown as students scan a box for a hidden source, a variation of one of the laboratory exercises. The research focus of the video demonstrates a radiation portal monitor used for screening livestock for radioactive contamination created using Canberra products. Involved in the Development and Testing of a Bovine Screening Portal research project led by Dr. Craig Marianno are Jennifer Erchinger, Jose Trevino, Timothy Jacomb-Hood, Manit Shah and Micheal Smith.
