The University Network for Excellence in Nuclear Engineering (known as UNENE) was created in 2002 as a partnership between the Canadian nuclear industry and universities to establish nuclear R&D programs in universities, train and develop highly qualified personnel to address the demographic gap, and to create a sustainable source of expertise for independent industry and public consultation. Fifteen years into its creation, UNENE is now a well-established and fully functional framework, with both education and research programs serving the industry at large. The educational component is comprised of an M.Eng program catering to working professionals, offered on weekends and using distance learning tools. It is intended to enhance competencies and build knowledge for students. UNENE’s R&D programs are led by Industrial Research chairs (IRCs) and other prominent researchers in areas important to the nuclear industry.

Objective of the Research Chair Program

Dr. Jiang has been an NSERC/UNENE Senior Industrial Research Chair in the area of control, instrumentation, and electrical systems in nuclear power plants (NPPs) since 2003. The main objectives of the research program are: (1) to assist Canadian nuclear industries in finding solutions to pressing issues of nuclear power plant control and instrumentation through both fundamental and applied research, and (2) to train highly qualified personnel in the field of nuclear engineering to meet the needs of Canada’s nuclear industry in the near future. Three major issues facing nuclear industries have formed the core for this research program: safety, availability, and competitiveness.

Advisory Committee

The Advisory Committee consists of experts from Ontario Power Generation, Bruce Power, and Atomic Energy of Canada (now, Canadian Nuclear Lab). The committee meets regularly to discuss research and graduate student training issues and provide suggestions and guidance.
