China’s nuclear industry faces one major challenge as it gears up for growth—human resources. It is currently estimated that China’s nuclear industry is suffering from a shortage of 1,500 qualified engineers and technicians per year. To solve this problem, the Sino-French Institute for Nuclear Energy and Technology will offer a nuclear engineering degree program in China. By training nuclear engineers, we hope we can propose a sustainable alternative to air pollution.
IFCEN is the nuclear engineering department of Sun Yat-sen University. Established in September 2010 in Zhuhai, the institute recruits more than 100 students every year. The students follow a six-year program in nuclear engineering and obtain a Master degree which is recognized in France and Europe as equivalent to the « engineering diploma » delivered ni the French schools of engineering. Thanks to the support of its industrial partners (CGN, Areva, EDF, Bureau Veritas), IFCEN trains high-level and multi-skilled engineers who are able to become leaders in their field.
