Necessity of Institute of Nuclear Power Engineering (INPE)


A country introducing nuclear power program needs significant number of qualified and trained professionals in following engineering fields:

  • Design and analysis of reactor systems, radiation protection, thermal-hydraulic design and safety
  • Design of containment building and piping systems
  • Probabilistic safety analysis, radiation protection and shielding design
  • Reactor operation, instrumentation and control
  • Reactor material development
  • Fuel cycle analyses and radioactive waste management
  • Design and analysis of power systems and electric-grid synchronization
  • Environmental qualification of equipment and systems
  • Safety policy, regulations and standards
  • project management, cost analysis and schedule control

INPE, BUET may help professionals to gather expertise in nuclear power engineering through relevant academic/professional courses and associated trainings.
