International Symposium on Advances in Nuclear Engineering, 2019
Nuclear science and technology applications have become a reality in the fields of power, health and industry in the country due to the efforts of scientists and engineers of Pakistan atomic energy commission since its initiation in late fifties. Today’s Department of Nuclear Engineering (DNE) of PIEAS is the center oriented to achieve academic excellence in nuclear engineering and its allied disciplines. Since, Pakistan has embarked on nuclear power and the expansion of its fields to address the future resource for sustainable development. DNE, PIEAS initiated target-oriented collaborative research projects with other scientific organizations of the country.
Scope of the Symposium
This symposium is going to cover all the topics related to Nuclear Engineering and would provide a forum where research activities of our MS students will be shared with the scientific and technical community at large. The symposium topics include:
