To meet the severe shortage of qualified people at it’s rapidly expanding atomic energy facilities at home and abroadChina is planning to build a university dedicated to nuclear power research. The country's leading nuclear power developer and operator, China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC), signed a contract with the Tianjin municipality government to invest in a nuclear technology university. They want to build the university as a national-level institution to function as a base for skill-training, masters, Ph.D. programs, and core technology research and development. "China has comparatively an integral nuclear industrial system. However, few nuclear-related fields differ widely from each other, and the existing nuclear-related majors...can not satisfy the demand for talent. Wan said only around 20% of 2,300 graduates who were hired by CNNC majored in nuclear-related courses. China is also building nuclear-power plants abroad. At home, China is operating 31 nuclear power units as of June 2016 while 23 more are under construction. Currently, nuclear technology related programs are offered by many Chinese universities including Tsinghua University, Peking University, and Xi'an Jiaotong University.
