INET (4) | Организации
e Institute of Nuclear and New Energy Technology of Tsinghua University was founded in 1960 as a top nuclear research and experimental base in China. In the last forty years, it has become a comprehensive research center with multi-disciplinary research, design and engineering projects mainly in nuclear technology. To further broaden academic disciplines of the institute, the full official name was changed into the Institute of Nuclear and New Energy Technology (INET), in September 2003.
The INET site consists of two parts on and off the campus of Tsinghua University. The main part of INET is located off-campus in the northern suburb of Beijing with a total area of around 750,000 including laboratories, offices and machine shops. The other branch of INET is located in a building called Energy Science Building, which occupies 9,500 on the campus of Tsinghua University.
INET includes seventeen research divisions, four research centers and several workshops. Since it was founded, INET has set up a twin-core swimming-pool type Experimental Shielding Reactor, a 5MW Nuclear Heating Reactor (NHR-5) and a 10MW High Temperature Gas-Cooled Reactor (HTR-10). INET's research covers more than ten fields related to nuclear, chemical, environmental and energy sciences. There are around 500 faculty and staff members and over 300 graduated students.
