The Visit of the Assistant Professor of the Academy at the Vienna University of Technology

Tornike Kimeridze, assistant professor of the National Defence Academy, was on a study visit to the Vienna University of Technology.

From February 6 to March 17 of this year, Academy assistant professor Tornike Kimeridze was invited by the International Atomic Energy Agency to the Institute of Atomic and Subatomic Physics at the Vienna University of Technology in Austria, where he was trained in nuclear physics, nuclear engineering, reactor physics, radiochemistry, detectors, on the directions of radiation defence and medical physics.

The aim of the study was to acquire knowledge of modern nuclear engineering and technology. In particular: safe operation of nuclear reactors, non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, radiation safety, environmental monitoring, modern approaches in the fight against cancer, and others.

"I am glad that I had the opportunity to take this course because the Vienna Atomic Institute is one of the institutions where inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Organization undergo training and education," Mr. Tornike said.

The knowledge gained at the mentioned training will be used in the Bachelor's program of mechanical engineering of the National Defence Academy, as well as in other directions in the academy and other agencies under the Ministry of Defence.
