The 2nd year class
Message from the second year DOJO students
We have a wide variety of domestic/international study tours, academic events and lectures in U-ATOM. Sometimes these activities may cause you to be concerned about balancing your research work. However, it’s worth it to gain the multiple views and perspectives of your own based on the knowledge and experience that you cannot earn anywhere else but only in U-ATOM, and the achievement of wisdom will be all yours. We hope that you question about what you want to acquire along your campus life before going out to society, and this educational program will be one of your right answers.
|Research||Study on the robust nuclear system against threats of the natural hazard, the nuclear terrorism, the proliferation.|
Originally, I belonged to Department of Mechano-Aerospace Engineering in Tokyo Institute of Technology and studied mechanical engineering in my undergraduate course. It was 1 year after from Fukushima Accident that I began to consider the admission of Graduate School. With my knowledge of the accident and the situation of nuclear fields, I come to believe that nuclear technologies have high potentials and we should keep on nuclear technologies progressing to maintain a highly-developed world. Then the beliefs lead me to enroll in the Department of Nuclear Engineering and U-ATOM course. In this course, I study how we ensure safety of people and nuclear facilities, how we prevent the wrong use of nuclear technologies and how we act in the international nuclear field. So I would say we have very technical, political, ethical and international lectures here, along with oversea trainings and international discussions. Not every students can go through such experiences. The experiences must be fruitful for me to cultivate my expertise, international competitiveness and leadership. Eventually I will gain the knowledge how to handle nuclear technologies safely and securely in this U-ATOM course and hope to build a world that we don’t need to worry about energy crisis any longer.
|Field||Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering|
|Research||Investigation of Phenomena in Cold-Cap on Vitrification Process|
I applied for the Department of Nuclear Engineering, as I am interested in the nuclear waste disposal issue. This issue must be addressed early, whether to resume operation or decommissioning of the nuclear power plants. Leveraging the Academy’s unique education programs such as the individual field works and liberal arts, I want to study hard and learn from my classmates and obtain nuclear expertise balanced with generalof knowledge and education, and ultimately lead the world’s nuclear field.
|Field||Materials in Extreme Environment|
|Research||Interface formation technique of SiCf/SiC composite|
The 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident moved me to apply for the Department of Nuclear Engineering. It is said that there is a long way to go to solve humanity's energy crisis, but reading the future is not easy. To clear the cloudy future, broad and accurate knowledge is what I believe we need the most. To start with, I want to learn many things and hear from various people; with that in mind, I am studying at U-ATOM.
|Research||Characterization of neutron-irradiated B4C|
I’m You Yan, from China, now I’m a PhD student in Department of Nuclear Engineering. I love nuclear, but I initially wanted to study material engineering in Tokyo tech, but luckily I decided to choose nuclear engineering on the spur of the moment. I don’t know if this is destiny, but I am sure I quiet enjoy it now.
