The Institute of Nuclear Power Engineering (INPE) at BUET was established in September 2015 with the vision of supporting and promoting the country’s first nuclear power project and other nuclear programs. Bangladesh decided to embark on nuclear power considering the inadequate indigenous energy resources. Introduction of nuclear power requires long term planning, detailed pre-project activities, framing of appropriate laws relating to construction, operation and regulation of nuclear power plants in order to ensure the safety of the public from any accidental release of nuclear regulations. Qualified and trained manpower is an essential pre-requisite for implementation of a nuclear power program. INPE is striving to become the leading institution for education, research, training and outreach in the field of nuclear technology so as to meet the need of the country for qualified and skilled manpower for planning, construction, regulation and operation of nuclear power plants and their ancillary facilities.
To become a center of excellence for providing education, research, and outreach in the field of nuclear technology as well as rendering technical support to the organizations responsible for implementation of nuclear power program of the country.
To promote and strengthen education, training, research and technical support on nuclear technology, particularly in the area of electric power generation using nuclear energy and thus help the country in its endeavors for enhancing socioeconomic development, safety and security of the people.
A country introducing nuclear power program needs significant number of qualified and trained professionals. INPE, BUET will help students and professionals to gather expertise in nuclear power engineering through relevant academic/professional courses and associated trainings.
INPE, BUET currently has the following post-graduate programs:
- M.Sc Engg. in NPE
- M.Engg. in NPE
Trainings & Workshops
INPE arranges trainings and workshops for the students of engineering background to spread the knowledge of safe and peaceful use of nuclear energy.
INPE arranges technical seminars where national and international experts in the field of nuclear power engineering share their thoughts and experiences.
