Abstract : Conclusions are as follows: Criticality safety has not received sufficient attention in nuclear engineering curricula; Safety attitudes should be strongly emphasized, where appropriate, in all existing courses; Opportunities should be increased for students to see films on nuclear safety, and, wherever possible, to observe routine operations of pulsed reactors, criticality laboratories, and industrial plants; Instituting required courses devoted primarily to criticality safety does not seem desirable; A technical book on criticality safety is urgently needed; Academic research in topics of interest for criticality safety should be enthusiastically supported, and aided by specialized advanced courses where appropriate; and Cooperative institutes and intensive 'short courses' for industrial specialists, faculty members, and graduate students should be organized; support for academic attendees from a wide geographical area would be necessary.
