Head of the Atomic Energy Authority, Dr. Amr El-Hajj, stated that the authority continues to implement the summer program for training the youth of Egyptian public, private and private universities in the scientific authority’s centers in Nasr City and Anshas.
«Atomic Energy» completes the implementation of summer training for university youth
This comes within the framework of the Atomic Energy Authority’s role in building expertise, training cadres, and qualifying young people in all fields of peaceful uses of atomic energy.
He pointed out that 1,700 male and female students from about 17 universities are being trained, which is the largest at the level of all universities and research centers.
Completion of the summer field training program for third-level students
Al-Hajj added that the summer field training program for third-level students in the Department of Land and Water and the Department of Agricultural Engineering at the Faculty of Agriculture, Benha University and students of the Department of Land Sciences at the Faculty of Agriculture, Zagazig University, has also been completed. – Communications engineering, computer engineering and control on nuclear electronic engineering technology.
The first program included training for students of the College of Agriculture at the Department of Land and Water Research in Inshas, with a presentation on the Commission’s research in the field of agriculture and land research, presented by Dr. Mostafa Zahran, Head of the Department of Land and Water Research. The theoretical lectures also included a lecture on land fertility studies and the application of the fixed isotope technology of nitrogen in soil and plants. The environment was presented by Dr. Suleiman Muhammad Suleiman, Dr. Yahya Jalal and Dr. Muhammad Ashraf.
In addition to a lecture on the role of radiation treatment in biofuel production, presented by Dr. Ezzat Abdel Mohsen Qutb, a visit was made to the plant research laboratories under the supervision of Dr. Mohamed Ayyad, Dr. Mohamed Abdel Razek, where they identified the role of radiation in improving crop productivity, as well as visiting experimental farms and learning about Designing irrigation networks and various irrigation systems, as well as a visit to the unit of water engineering, renewable energy technology, solar power plant and greenhouses, and getting to know the oxygen-18 technology, which is supervised by Dr. Ahmed Hegazy. Finally, a visit was made to the research water station at the Atomic Energy Authority and to learn about the methods of water treatment and filtration, as well as a visit to the laboratory of technical cooperation projects with the International Atomic Energy Agency and to learn about the methods of radiometric measurements of environmental samples, which is supervised by Dr. Muhammad Kassab.
The implementation of the program was supervised by Dr. Mohamed Ashraf Heikal, land teacher at the Atomic Energy Authority, and Dr. Haitham Mohamed Shehata Salem, head of the Department of Land and Water, Faculty of Agriculture, Benha University. 42 male and female students were trained.
As for the second program, which included the training of students of the Higher Obour Institute for Engineering and Technology from the electrical engineering departments in its two divisions – Communication Engineering and Computer Engineering and Control headed by Prof. Dr. Sumaya Qaid, head of the department at the Institute, on nuclear electronics technology in the Department of Engineering and Scientific Equipment at the Nuclear Research Center in Inshas. The theoretical training program included The practical knowledge of the design of devices and electronic circuits for radiation measurement devices and how to maintain them. The program was implemented under the supervision of Dr. Hani Kasban, Head of the Engineering Department, Dr. Muhammad Al-Toukhi, Dr. Al-Sayed Mahdi and a number of faculty members in the department.
The authority will complete in September 2022 the implementation of the remaining training programs
In turn, Dr. Hedaya Ahmed Kamel, Vice President of the Commission for Training and International Cooperation, confirmed that the Commission will complete during the month of September 2022 the implementation of the rest of the summer training programs for university youth in the research centers of the Commission, which cover the specializations of students of engineering, agriculture, pharmacy, science, education, and arts.
