News from STP: STP Hosts IAEA Deputy Director Visit

March 21, 2013

    The Nuclear Power Institute, at Texas A&M University, in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is hosting a three-week Nuclear Energy Management School (NEMS) for professionals working in nuclear energy and related fields. The school targets participants from the Americas but is open to applicants from other countries. The purpose of this school is to provide a unique international educational experience aimed at building future leadership to manage and support nuclear energy programs. It is aimed at professionals with managerial potential who show promise as future leaders in the nuclear industry, academia, government agencies and public sector entities in their country.

    A special feature of NEMS is a trip to Atlanta, Georgia to meet with representatives of the Institute for Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) and the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO) and visit the nuclear power plant construction site of Plant Vogtle Units 3 and 4 in Waynesboro, Georgia.

    Since STP works so closely with NPI, they decided to bring one very special participant to meet with some of our management and get a look at STP up close. STP welcomed the International Atomic Energy Agency's Deputy Director General Alexander Bychkov on Tuesday, March 19, along with NPI and Texas A&M University professors.
