    Nuclear Engineering Education: A Competence-based Approach in Curricula Development

    Maintaining nuclear competencies in the nuclear industry and nuclear regulatory authorities will be one of the most critical challenges in the near future. With the recent upsurge in interest in, and support for, nuclear power, many Member States (MS) are considering the introduction of Nuclear Power as part of their national energy strategy; other countries are entering the decommissioning phase or/and considering expansion of existing fleets of nuclear power plants (NPP). Both approaches require careful planning, preparation and investment in time and human resources. Of principal importance is the availability of a well-prepared competent workforce to operate and regulate nuclear facilities. The management of nuclear knowledge in these countries and the development of the human resources are fundamental pre-requisites to the safe and secure operation of nuclear reactors. To meet this challenge, many countries are establishing nuclear engineering educational programmes to graduate competent engineers to work in nuclear power. Read more →
