THE ROLE OF TECHNOLOGY AT THE FERNALD ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT PROJECT
This paper details my experience as an intern with the Technology Programs department at Fluor Fernald, Inc. The report begins with a discussion of the U.S. Department of Energy’s role in the Cold War, followed by an introduction to the Fernald Environmental Management Project. A former uranium processing facility, Fernald is now the focus of a long-term environmental remediation and restoration effort. My role within the managing contractor’s Technology Programs department is explored, along with the department’s overall contribution to the remediation mission at Fernald. The major projects I completed during my tenure are also described. The report concludes with an evaluation of the internship and a discussion of how it complemented the education I received at Miami University.
