Introduction : Department of Nuclear Power Plant Engineering
The Department of NPP Engineering offers a comprehensive graduate-level program covering all aspects of a nuclear power plant project starting from the design and certification phase, through the operation and management, all the way to decommissioning. Our program provides the students with both the theoretical as well as practical training that enables them to lead NPP projects in their countries.
Most of our students are employed professionals who have worked for over three years in nuclear power-related corporations or companies, in either the Republic of Korea or other countries. After completion of the two-year (four-semesters) program at KINGS, students graduate with a Master‘s Degree in Nuclear Power Plant Engineering. Students may pursue a Master of Engineering (ME) or a Master of Science (MS).
In their first year, students take a number of courses covering different areas of NPP Engineering (e.g. design, construction, project management, safety analysis, radiation protection, decommissioning, and waste management). In their second year, students specialize in one of those study areas, through team projects that combine engineering and management aspects of an NPP project. This prepares our students to take up global leadership roles in the energy organizations of their countries.
