March 16-18, on request of IAEA Department of Technical Cooperation Central Institute for Continuing Education and Training received a delegation from Malaysia. Its membership included the representatives from the Universiti TENAGA Nasional: Prof.Muhamad Zambri Yussoff (Head of delegation), Mr Norshah Shuaib (a specialist in nuclear power engineering and mechanics), and Mr. Shamsul Sulaiman – a specialist in nuclear energy and the quantum of the National Company Berhad (Tenaga Nasional Berhard-TNB) – one of the largest power generating companies in South-East Asia. Malaysia has an extensive network of universities that can provide training for specialists, inclusive of those for nuclear power. However, Universiti TENAGA Nasional is somehow unique – it is one of the first private universities in Malaysia and is wholly owned by the power generation company TNB. The University is rapidly moving towards becoming a regional center for high quality education. According to the plans of development by 2012 the University is to create a cluster of nuclear specialties (bachelor’s, master’s and postgraduate programmes) and become a Regional Nuclear and Technical Education Center in South – East Asia. The request to CICE&T is connected to the fact that here since 2009 the courses aimed at the establishment of national nuclear infrastructure of potential recipients of Russian nuclear technology have been implementing. Following the visit the parties signed a memorandum according to which in CICE&T there will be training courses organized for teaching staff to open the specialities related to the training of specialists for nuclear energy in the Universiti TENAGA Nasional.
