A group of 30 students from Harvard University and the University of Sao Paulo completed a two-week course Saturday in Brazil focused on future energy-generation challenges.

Part of a cooperation program linking the two institutions, the course has been offered once a year since 2010 in both Brazil and the United States and has covered different subject matter in each edition.

This year, the group attended lectures and classroom sessions and made visits to a nuclear power plant in the southeastern Brazilian town of Angra dos Reis and the offices of the Operator of the National Electric System, the G1 news portal said.

Last year's edition, held in the United States, centered on disaster management and prevention. EFE
