Nuclear Engineering
Nuclear engineering is based on advanced energy engineering technology such as nuclear power plant that generates electricity by putting enormous energy emitted by nuclear reaction to practical use and nuclear reaction power generation for solving energy shortage problem fundamentally. It is an application science of studying and developing new technology and system that could create and lead the current and future industry through the study of state-of-the-art science technologies of 21st century such as plasma, radiation, particle accelerator, and laser.

Korean technology of design, construction, and operation of nuclear power plant is approaching the highest level of the world and we have foundation to become as a country of advanced nuclear power technology. Therefore, it is urgently needed to grow capability of systematic research of essential technology and to nurture high quality professional manpower in order to supply long-term national energy sources continuously and to secure position of industrial country of exporting nuclear power.

For this end, this department is teaching by largely dividing into three fields due to its academic characteristics. The first is nuclear system engineering field in which students study about various issues and its use of nuclear energy that is settled down as major energy sources of modern time and as its detailed research subjects, there are interpretation of nuclear reactor, neutron physics, research of system of nuclear reactor power, analysis of safety of nuclear reactor, interpretation and experiment of thermal flow of nuclear reactor, nuclear materials engineering, and nuclear transformation engineering. The second is the field of plasma and proton physics engineering and it covers researches of nuclear fusion that will become ultimate energy sources in the 21st century and plasma, accelerator/particle beam. Laser that will take charge of central role of science technology of the 21st century such as IT. BT, and Et. Its detailed research field is interpretation of nuclear fusion plasma, nuclear fusion reactor engineering, plasma process, development of accelerator for industry, and ion beam engineering. The third is the field of studying radiation engineering in which students research peaceful and industrial use of radiation that is by-product of nuclear energy and its detailed fields carry out studies of application nuclear physics, instrumentation of radiation, nuclear medicine, health physics, nuclear policy, and evaluation of environment.

In consideration of characteristics of atomic energy research as complex and large scale science technology, this department is trying to play the role of leading domestic academy by reinforcing research ability of essential technology and challenging unexplored area of science technology focusing on the development of creative research and at the same time by securing international competitiveness through the world-class research and development.
