Waterford 3 student site visit

Freeman students visit the Waterford 3 control room simulator, a training facility located within Entergy’s Waterford 3 nuclear power plant that replicates the instrumentation in the plant’s actual control room down to the last toggle switch. The students toured the plant in January as part of the Undergraduate Intensive Energy Seminar, a weeklong intersession course that combined lectures and class projects with site visits to offer students a deep dive into the energy business. In addition to connecting students with industry professionals, the course was co-taught by three senior executives with more than 100 years of energy experience among them: Casey Herman (BSM ’86), partner and leader of the US Power & Utilities Industry Practice at PwC; Darren Olagues (BSM ’92), executive vice president and CFO of GenOn Energy; and Eric Smith (MBA ’67), professor of practice and interim executive director of the Tulane Energy Institute.
