Overview of BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING (NUCLEAR) in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Malaysia

Depletion of the country’s petroleum and gas reserves has prompted the country to look for alternative sources of energy. Nuclear energy is one of the best alternative sources of energy. Rapid developments in the application of nuclear engineering in other sectors such as defence, medical and agriculture are demanding for more nuclear engineers. It has been shown that one of the critical conditions for the successful introduction of a nuclear power programme and other nuclear related industries is the availability of trained manpower that meets the desired quality and quantity. These reasons have called for the establishment of education/training infrastructures as well as national education and training capabilities in the field of engineering and science in order to develop qualified personnel for the nuclear power programme.
