Call for Power Reactor Simulator Practicum

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) International Nuclear Human Resource Development Initiative Project is organizing a “Consortium for Advanced Nuclear Education Consortium for the Future Society” consisting of universities, technical colleges, and research institutes in Japan.
The consortium consists of universities, technical colleges, research institutes, and other organizations in Japan, and conducts a large number of experiments and practical training in nuclear engineering.
Within ANEC, Tokai University has established a power reactor simulator for the purpose of learning the behavior of nuclear power reactor plants during accidents.
The purpose of the practical training is to learn the behavior of nuclear power plants in the event of an accident, using the SARS nuclear reactor simulator. University and graduate students who are interested in nuclear power generation are invited to participate.
We are looking for university and graduate school students who are interested in nuclear power generation to participate.
 Please note that the training may be conducted online, depending on the status of COVID-19 infection.
