SIS training environment
08 February 2012
Students from the UAE’s Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR) joined Liverpool John Moores University to complete the final stage of their MSc programme in Risk and Safety Management.
The students presented their MSc project plans to academics from LJMU's School of Engineering Technology and Maritime Operations and consultants from Risktec Solutions.
FANR was established in 2009 as an independent federal regulatory authority charged with regulation of all nuclear activities in the UAE. The authority selected the University’s Masters programme to educate and train its engineers and technologists with responsibility for the safe construction and operation for the UAEs first nuclear power plants, the construction of which is to begin in 2012.
Projects presented include investigations into strategies designed to diminish the consequences of nuclear accidents, investigation into the issues surrounding the siting of the nuclear plant, and human and organisational factors to prevent accidents.
