The Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power(KHNP) recently signed a "working agreement" with Kyung Hee University's reactor center to nurture future nuclear energy professionals.
KHNP decided to take responsibility for the safety operation of the nation's nuclear power plants and actively cooperate in establishing an educational cooperative system to promote human resources development that will lead the future nuclear power industry.
The KHNP plans to help create the environment so that more students can participate in various laboratory practices by supporting the reinforcement of facilities at Kyung Hee University's reactor center and the supply of the latest experimental equipment.
Kyung Hee University's reactor center will develop new experimental and practical programs through cooperation with professors of the country's atomic energy department and plans to open and operate facilities to allow all nuclear power engineering students and workers in the nuclear power industry across the country to participate in education.
"Creating talented workers in the nuclear industry is most important for safe operation of nuclear power plants and overseas shipments," said KHNP President Jeong Jae-hoon. "The KHNP will provide support in many ways for future generations' dreams."
