What is Nanoenergy engineering?
The Department of Nanoenergy Engineering will be launched in 2015 in the College of Nano Science and Technology to cultivate competent human resources equipped with creative and technological fusion capability in the citting-edge of energy research in order to solve the problems of global warming and resource exhaustion which have been global issues. The department is also furnished with the most advanced laboratory equipment to study the multiscale energy science and engineering with professors who majored basic sciences (physics, chemistry, and biology etc.) and engineerings (mechanical, electrical, electronics, and materials) and have a world class capabilities in education and research.
What do students learn in the Department of Nanoenergy Engineering?
The curricula of basic sciences (physics, chemistry, biology etc.) are organized for freshman and sophomore students and which will be used in the fusion energy science & technology disciplines through the understanding of diverse theoretical concepts and multiscale phenomena with laboratorial experiments. Tne junior and senior students will major in each one’s specialty the field of energy engineering provided with two tracks. In two tracks, the courses of Energy Matter Measurement and Analysis, Solar Element Engineering, Fuel & Secondary Cell Engineering, and Advanced Electrical/Electronic Circuits and etc. are commonly provided for students who want to study further in specialized courses presented below. - The track of “Nanoenergy Matter and Element Engineering” provides the students with advanced courses of the synthesis of micro- or nano-scaled nanoenergy matter and manufacturing of energy-harvesting elements by studying the curricula such as Electronic Energy Element Engineering, Semiconductor Element Engineering, Electrical/Chemical Engineering, and Piezoelectric & Thermoelectric Element Engineering and etc. - The track of “Nanoenergy Systems Engineering” provides the students with advanced courses in the macro-scaled systems of energy production, energy preservation, and energy distribution to maximize the efficiency of diverse existing systems comprising the mechanical, electrical, and electronic components by studying the courses of Mechanical Control Engineering, Hydrodynamics, Heat and Mass Transfer, Design of Multiscale System, and Smart Grid Engineering and etc. .
What can student do after graduation?
Our graduates find positions in industries related to materials, chemistry, or semiconductors or in the research institutes funded by companies or government. As nanomaterials engineering is related to other high-tech industries such as the automotive, robotic, medical, bioengineering, energy, and environmental industries, our graduates can also find jobs in these fields; also, many of our graduates continue their studies at the graduate level. Some graduates attend the Department of Nanofusion Technology at Pusan National University, and others attend domestic or foreign graduate schools related to nanotechnology.
