Course description and aims

The class provides the latest and wide knowledge in the fundamentals of nuclear chemistry, radiation chemistry, nuclear physics, radiation physics and its interactions in materials, radiation biology, and nuclear energy systems. This is a network class by Tokyo Tech, Fukui Univ., Ibaraki Univ., Okayama Univ., Kanazawa Univ., Osaka Univ., Nagoya Univ. and JAEA provided using an interactive telecommunication system.

Student learning outcomes

Explain the fundamentals of nuclear engineering in the various fields.


nuclear chemistry, radiation chemistry, radioactivity, atomic nucleus, nuclear reaction, nuclear power

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

The class is provided by the lectures who are the expert in the fields. Since this lecture will be held jointly with other universities, the number of lectures will be 15 (90 minutes). Also, since it became difficult under Corona to have a simultaneous lecture of all participating universities, the lectures recorded in advance will be distributed on Zoom. At that time, TA will stop the lecture several times to accept questions, and will also accept questions at any time through chat etc. and inform the answer after the lecture.
