Hitachi Nuclear Equipment Design Intern
Organization: Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy, Ltd.
Term: Summer 2015
Country: Hitachi City, Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan
Primary Internship Duties: This internship is within the Nuclear Equipment Design Department and will focus on a study of equipment design for a nuclear power plant. In this internship program, participants can experience the equipment design process for an ABWR power plant. Nuclear power generating plants are one of the important power sources as global warming prevention measures, and they will have been positioned as one of the important “backbone power source” in the future in Japan. In addition, a lot of new nuclear power plant construction projects are being planned throughout the world. Participants in this internship can experience part of the nuclear grade equipment design process through the following activities: – Preparation practice for design documents, such as calculation documents, procurement specifications, drawings, procedures, instruction manuals, etc. – Factory shop tour Interns will give a final presentation of their experience on the last day. Because this internship will be working with U.S. export regulations students with U.S. citizenship are strongly preferred and the scope of the internship would have to be significantly limited for a non-U.S. student.
