The student training courses using the experimental fast reactor Joyo and related facilities of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) have been initiated to utilize the nuclear facilities and their engineering staffs for the education purpose. The development of the student training course was also strongly supported by the faculty of nuclear engineering of domestic universities whose curriculum has recently been reduced. The program covers the reactor physics test analysis of Joyo core or experiments using the Joyo full-scope training simulator, neutron dosimetry, trace amount of noble gas measurement and chemical analysis of sodium, and the program has started after check and review by the specialists in university education. It is expected to promote the human resource development for the younger generation in nuclear industry, and to strengthen the relation between JAEA and universities in research area.
