Nuclear Science and Technology For doing research in Controlled Nuclear Fusion

  1. Oct 3, 2014 #1
    I am interested in doing research in controlled nuclear fusion , i am doing my electrical engineering 4th year in India. Since no college in my country offers post graduation in fusion related fields , i have decided to do M.Tech in Nuclear science and technology in Indian Institute of Technolgy in kanpur, a very good college in India.I want to know whether my decision is right or wrong ?. I have attached the syllabus for this course please go through it and tell your views on this.

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    I haven't come to any new conclusion yet , but no problem i can for some more days.

    Nuclear fusion research is done in a wide range of fields, it's obviously done in physics followed by nuclear engineers, electrical engineers, and mechanical/materials engineers. I would say your decision is a good one but some nuclear departments focus almost exclusively on fission rather than fusion, though there are research areas where the two coincide slightly like neutron detection diagnostics, so it would depend on what your school's emphasis is.
