Nuclear Engineering
Graduate Major
Curriculum

An educational curriculum for
developing globally successful individuals who
contribute to society

In the Graduate Major in Nuclear Engineering, related courses are organized into categories to provide systematic, specialized learning according to students' level of learning and attainment.

    • Tokyo Tech
    • Other Universities,
      Technical Colleges, etc.
  1. Entrance
    Examination

     
    Applicants must pass an entrance examination to advance from an undergraduate major to a master's program.
  2. Master's Program
    ( 2 Years )*1

    400-Level and 500-Level Courses

    The curriculum is structured to allow students to acquire advanced specialized knowledge of nuclear engineering, broad vision and education, and a strong sense of ethics and responsibility based on the systematic or comprehensive knowledge of science and engineering learned in the Undergraduate Program. It also enables students to acquire more advanced specialized knowledge, logical dialogue skills, writing skills, practical problem-solving ability, and creativity through Research Seminars and master's thesis research.

    • Nuclear Reactor Engineering
      Nuclear reactors are large systems utilizing various technologies. In this course group, students learn basic engineering necessary for systematically and comprehensively understanding reactor systems.
    • Nuclear Reactor Decommissioning Engineering
      Students learn basic engineering necessary for safely decommissioning the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station and the increasing number of nuclear reactors that have reached the end of their lifespan.
    • Nuclear Fuel Cycle Engineering
      Students learn basic engineering necessary for producing and supplying fuel, and for safely disposing of spent fuel, which is essential for operating nuclear reactors.
    • Radiation Biology and Medicine
      Accurate knowledge related to the impact of radiation on the human body and other living things is essential for the safe utilization of nuclear energy. In this course group, students study the impact of radiation on living things and its medical applications.
    • Nuclear Fusion / Accelerator Engineering
      Nuclear fusion is expected to resolve future energy problems. In addition, accelerators have become more widely used in the fields of medicine and natural science. In this course group, students learn basic engineering related to nuclear fusion reactors and accelerators.
    • Basic Nuclear Engineering
      Successful researchers and leaders in nuclear power must have strong ethics and a sense of social responsibility, and have knowledge of various safety regulations. In this course group, students work to meet these requirements.
    • Wide and Advanced Nuclear Engineering
      In order to effectively promote the use of nuclear power and radiation, not only is it essential to understand related engineering knowledge, it is also necessary to understand a wide range of disciplines, the relationship between resources/nature and energy, and the relationship between safety/security and society. In this course group, students acquire the latest knowledge in these fields.
    • Internships
      In order to acquire genuinely practical abilities after graduating, students can experience internships, etc., and consider the meaning and application of what they have learned and contemplate their future goals. In this course group, there are internships related to decommissioning engineering in Japan and overseas.
    • Research Seminars
      Research Seminars and literature reviews are conducted to support students in their master's thesis research.
