Department of Quantum Science and Energy Engineering

Students in this Department attain a deep understanding of the electrons, atomic nuclei and atoms making up matter at the quantum level, learn about their interaction with matter, and study quantum-level phenomena and the applications of them to such areas as medical diagnosis and development of new materials. They also study the principles and mechanisms of fission reactors and fusion reactors for controlling and making effective use of the energy produced by nuclear reactions. The studies therefore combine multiple disciplines, in a comprehensive program going from quantum phenomena to their applications.

Why Choose Us?

The Department of Quantum Science and Energy Engineering in the Tohoku University Graduate School of Engineering has compiled a long list of accomplishments, gaining attention in Japan and throughout the world. Among the areas of involvement are development of fusion reactors, improving the safety of nuclear power plants and other large-scale systems, making advanced use of radiation in medical and environmental fields, advancing the nuclear fuel cycle, aiding with recovery from the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, improving radioactive waste disposal techniques and evaluating its environmental impact, and raising the level of maintenance engineering.
