Recently the global warming issues are advocated, so the nuclear power is paid to attention again as a low-carbon and ecology energy source; So-called “The Nuclear Power Renaissance1” has risen up
The main nuclear power industrial countries are not staying only in the domestic sales but progressing global sales strategies of nuclear power plants, and not the few nations backup them. On such a background, the main & developing nuclear power industrial countries work positively on the human resources education of nuclear engineering
Inside that nuclear power industry globally develops, the required human resources education should stand on the same viewpoint, however, no English textbook that becomes a global standard has existed up to now, and the publication was expected for a long time
While seeing such a worldwide demand and aiming to become a global standard, the Japanese nuclear power specialists concentrated their wisdom, and the Japanese version "Nuclear engineering textbook series" were published in the cooperation of the University of Tokyo, Japan Atomic Energy Agency and other domestic organization related to nuclear engineering.
Moreover, the covered range is various and includes not only the nuclear reactor but also the nuclear fuel cycle, the radiation use, and the maintenance, etc. This was possible only in Japan that has steadily advanced the research and development of all fields of nuclear engineering.
The English version "Nuclear engineering textbook series", the English translation of the Japanese version, can be expected to be useful as a globally standard textbook for the he human resources education of nuclear engineering in the all domestic and foreign universities that have the department of nuclear engineering, such as the University of Tokyo, and all research laboratories and companies related to the nuclear engineering.
