Technology Training


Given the renewed worldwide interest in nuclear technology, there has been a growing demand for qualified nuclear professionals, which in turn has resulted in the creation of new nuclear science and technology education programs and in the growth of existing ones. Of course, this increase in the number of students pursuing nuclear degrees, has also contributed to the increased need for qualified faculty and comprehensive and up-to-date curricula. The IAEA provides advanced simulation software as well as workshops and training in technology topics:
