UNDERGRADUATE : Course 22 Roadmaps : Fusion Energy

This roadmap emphasizes NSE applied to fusion energy systems with course 22 SB.

    Some possible student outcomes:

  • Engineer in fusion energy research
  • Engineer in plasma-related industry (processing, accelerators, light sources)
  • Preparation for fusion graduate studies.

Course/electives are suggested that provide multi-disciplinary depth in fusion energy, including entry-level graduate courses. UROPs among fusion faculty and at MIT's Plasma Science and Fusion Center are highly encouraged.
