Ghana to develop cooperation with Russia in the nuclear industry
The West African country is interested in expanding its partnership with the Russian Federation to develop its nuclear industry, as stated on the website of the Tomsk Polytechnic University following the execution of a memorandum with the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission (GAEC), with the support of Rosatom State Corporation. TPU is the first and only Russian university to enter into a similar agreement.
According to Benjamin Nyarko, the Director General of GAEC, Ghana is extremely interested in cooperating with Rosatom in employee training and human resources development, as well as joint projects aimed at promoting public acceptance of nuclear projects in the country, performance of joint studies and implementation of infrastructure projects.
As noted by the Oleg Dolmatov, Director of the Engineering School of TPU, African countries are very interested in Russian nuclear education. Most African students at the Tomsk Polytechnical Univesity choose fields of study and programmes related to nuclear technologies.
Since 2015 TPU offers an English-language master’s degree programme in nuclear physics and technologies. Among the first graduates of the programme there were students from Ghana, who were hired by GAEC after graduating from the Tomsk University. It was earlier reported that Rosatom is expanding its presence in Latin America and Africa.
