Indonesia plans to build its first nuclear power plant (NPP) to solve the country’s energy problems, but it needs skilled human resources in the field of nuclear technology. Nuclear engineering development has to be independent of the presence of nuclear power plants in Indonesia, since many NPPs are now being built around the world. In addition, according to the national Nuclear Energy Regulatory Agency, there are 2825 institutions, including medical institutions, currently using radioactive materials in Indonesia. So there are several opportunities that could be the basis for developing the new nuclear engineering curriculum.
