Advanced Nuclear System Engineering
The major of Advanced Nuclear System Engineering (ANSE) deals with the most advanced nuclear technologies that have greater safety and economics as well as non-proliferation of nuclear materials, and the reduction of nuclear wastes. Most of the advanced nuclear technologies are based on the design and operation experiences of nuclear reactors, newly developed and/or technologies being developing currently of advanced nuclear reactors. The ANSE program includes active technical training and education on the fundamental and application areas of nuclear system engineering while minimizing simple academic educations. The graduate program intends to provide the advanced technical skills and research capabilities. The graduate program (Master and Ph.D. courses) of the ANSE major consists mainly of three groups such as Nuclear Reactor Engineering (RE), Nuclear Safety (NS), and Fusion Technologies (FT). The RE group deals mainly with design and performance evaluation of new reactor systems such as research reactor, advanced light water reactor, Gen-IV reactors. The NS group covers fundamental thermal-hydraulic experiments, safety analysis, thermal-hydraulic design, severe accidents, probabilistic safety assessment, environmental safety, radiation safety, and nuclear regulation. And the FT deals with nuclear reactor physics, nuclear materials, instrumentation and control, and radiation shielding. The courses consist of classroom lecture, field research, seminars, and thesis research. The students participate very closely with faculty members in research projects conducted by the campus of Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI). Through systematic and comprehensive programs of education and research, we aim to contributing to the development of more safe and sustainable advanced nuclear systems.
