Toward the carbon-neutral society construction, atomic energy and safe utilization are critically expected as "zero-carbon energy and technology". Integrated field of nuclear engineering is comprehensively introduced mainly in viewpoint of materials and chemical engineering, focused on energy theory, advanced reactor, fuel cycle, decommissioning, and back-end technology.
This course aims at comprehensive understanding of the cocept of "Green Transformation" toward the carbon-neutral society construction by studying various energy systems, carbon circulating technology, energy materials and chemical technology centered in nuclear energy development with total energy strategy.
