Nuclear Engineering
Graduate Major

Effectively using nuclear energy and
radiation to benefit society

How should nuclear power be used in the future? How can radiation, which is already used for cancer treatments, be used more effectively? In order to answer this question, the Graduate Major in Nuclear Engineering teaches students to systematically learn and conduct research on nuclear engineering, its use, radiation, and the science involved.

Objectives

Become a leader who supports the development of
nuclear power technology that harmonizes
with the environment and society

In the Master's Program, we aim to cultivate researchers and engineers who have advanced specialized knowledge of nuclear engineering, have a sense of social responsibility regarding research, development, and utilization of nuclear engineering, have international communication skills, and who support the development of safe nuclear engineering technology that harmonizes with society and the environment.
In the Doctoral Program, we aim to cultivate individuals who have advanced specialized knowledge of nuclear engineering, have a sense of social responsibility regarding the research, development, and utilization of nuclear engineering, are successful international leaders, and who pioneer new fields.
