A student of Graduate Major in Nuclear Engineering had been to Laboratory of Engineering Computer Modeling, National Research Nuclear University (MEPhI), 29 Nov., 2019 to 11 Feb. 2020.

The research theme was set by the student’s request to enable to contribute own master’s thesis. Since the calculation code used in the host laboratory was different from in Japan, SERPENT, the student needed to learn it newly.
His experiences and hard works in MEPhI were introduced at the 3rd Japan-Russia joint forum for Education and Research held in Feb. 2020. Professors participated in the forum complimented his effort and work.

This long-term dispatch program has been fruitfully developing young researchers bridging between Japan and Russia as well as the one to MSU.
