Nuclear energy is all about contributing more than 15% of global electricity requests with more than 400 nuclear reactors operating in more than 30 countries. As global electricity demand has increased since the decade, the percentage has also increased due to the demand for global electricity in real terms.
The Bachelor of Engineering in Nuclear Engineering in Malaysia on a full-time course is mandatory to purposely promote nuclear development and for utilizing research reactors. It is said that it is aimed at volume and capability building through a systemic perspective approach in nuclear-related subjects. This helps in valuing the potential of nuclear energy as an alternative energy resource. Basically, it takes years to prepare the nuclear workforce for this technology in all aspects which include all the aspects of planning until the decommissioning including the final waste disposal of the nuclear power plant.
The purpose of the course is to provide Nuclear Engineering knowledge and skills to students who have less idea or none about the background of nuclear-related subjects, mainly for those students who have an interest in reactor engineering. A national academic program has been developed for the education of the scientists, engineers, and other technicians to support technicians to reinforce technical research which can be expected to be in order as part of the development which is needed in national capabilities.
