About the School of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering
The School of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering (MNE) consists of two tracks such as Mechanical Engineering (MEN) and Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE). The MNE focuses on world-class research and education in order to nurture creative experts and scholars who can contribute to the development and advancement of cutting-edge industries. With the state-of-the-art facilities, the combination of traditional engineering and IT, and interdisciplinary approaches, the school concentrates on a variety of research fields, including design, manufacturing, system analysis, energy, nuclear reactions, nuclear fuels and nuclear fuel cycle, nuclear fuel cladding and structural materials, nuclear reactor/system thermal-hydraulics and safety, nuclear radiation, waste disposal, and many nuclear applications. Although the MNE provides two disciplines with students it together emphasizes the creativity and ingenuity of the education.
- Mechanical Engineering(MEN)
- Mechanical Engineering deals with numerous systems and has a variety of important applications such as automobiles, aircraft, ships, home appliances, electronic devices, power plants and so on. The mechanical systems and the fundamental science and technology of mechanical engineering have made dramatic advances andhigh impacts on the global economies and the standard of living. In the track of mechanical engineering, students are educated and trained to learn the underlying principles of mechanical engineering and to apply the knowledge to real-world examples and case studies hands-on. Disciplines include thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, dynamics, machine design, advanced materials processing, laser-assisted manufacturing, micro/nano machining, MEMS, biomedical products, controls and mechatronics, acoustics, tribology and so on.
- Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE)
- The science and engineering principles for nuclear engineering are provided, which are related to using the energy released from nuclear fission or fusion such as nuclear power generation, nuclear propulsion, nuclear radiation applications. Education and research topics include design principles and analyses for nuclear reactions, commercial light water reactors and next-generation nuclear reactors such as liquid-metal-cooled fast reactor and gas-cooled reactor for hydrogen generation, nuclear fusion reactor, fuel cycle and nuclear waste disposal, systems and components for nuclear reactors, reactor theory, nuclear thermo-hydraulics, nuclear fuel and cladding, nuclear structural materials, magnetohydrodynamics, and nuclear radiation applications.
