Nuclear Simulation Laboratory

Our Nuclear Engineering program features the most extensive nuclear power plant computer simulation of any engineering program in Ontario. The Nuclear Simulation Lab houses a state-of-the-art computer and display system for the operation and simulation of nuclear power plants. You will receive instruction on a virtual Candu 9 simulator as well as learn how to use Ontario Power Generation’s (OPG) only off-site full scope virtual simulator in the world, designed for the Pickering and Darlington nuclear-electric generating units. The faculty also has the capability to develop software for advanced reactor designs within the lab.
