Status of Nuclear Education & Training Facilities for Rooppur NPP Programme
Status of Nuclear Education & Training Facilities for Rooppur NPP Programme • BAEC has a good number of professionals in various branches of nuclear technology; • The Core Manpower for preparatory activities of the Rooppur Nuclear Power project is available in BAEC; • A dedicated group of professionals is working for the regulatory body; • Fresh professionals for Rooppur NPP and the nuclear regulatory body will be available from the General Universities, Universities of Engineering and Technology and Technical Institutions from their annual out put; • A training Institute under BAEC has been established to train the professionals in the field of nuclear technology. Presently this institute offers fundamental courses on nuclear technology to the junior professionals of BAEC; • The appointment of fresh professionals for preparatory stage construction of “Rooppur NPP” and “Regulatory Body” are in progress;
Status of Nuclear Education & Training Facilities for Rooppur NPP Programme • The Government has taken initiatives to strengthen infrastructure for education and research in nuclear science and technology and major universities have been instructed in this regard; • A couple of universities in the country are taken initiatives to open nuclear engineering courses, mostly in the post-graduate level. • Dhaka University has started Nuclear Engineering department for graduate and post graduate level.
Status of Nuclear Education & Training Facilities for Rooppur NPP Programme • A leading technical university (a public univ.) of the country BUET (Bangladesh University of Engg. & Technology) is also working to start NE courses at different levels; • BRAC university (a private univ.) has signed MoU with BAEC for joint collaboration in the area of nuclear science & technology education; • Technical Institutions (Polytechnic and Vocational) located in Dhaka is being requested to introduce appropriate courses on nuclear energy;
Academic institutions available in the country • Total Number of Public Universities = 34 • General = 21 • Engineering = 5 • Science & Technology = 7 • Medical = 1 • Total Number of Private Universities = 52 • General = 44 • Engineering = 3 • Science & Technology = 5 • Medical = 0 • Total number of Students in Private Universities is about 280,822 (Year: 2011)
