Sciences and Technology) visited TAMU twice to discuss cooperation.
A Letter of Intent for Cooperation covering academic research,
exchange of personnel, education and training, capacity building
development, was signed with NSSPI on November 2009. Three
Malaysian sponsored students are applying for nuclear engineering
graduate studies starting next spring.
