Introductie / missie

We work on selected, pressing problems of nuclear fusion energy by coming up with innovative solutions, ranging from turbulence optimization to liquid wall concepts.

Highlighted phrase

We tackle challenges of fusion energy by unleashing the creative minds of our students

Over de organisatie

Nuclear fusion, probably the most daunting scientific and technological challenge mankind has ever taken on, might one day provide humanity with a clean, safe and virtually unlimited energy source. Motivated by this potential, we set out to tackle some of its most important challenges. Our researchers address these from different angles, utilizing the wide variety of tools that theory, numerical models and experiments grant us. Through our Science and Technology of Nuclear Fusion master’s degree program, we train a new generation of fusion engineers to propel the field of nuclear fusion into the future.

Our approach is highly multidisciplinary, which is reflected in the close collaboration with the Applied Physics, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering departments as well as the on-campus Dutch Institute For Fundamental Energy Research (DIFFER). We contribute to, and are in close contact with the largest fusion efforts around the world, including ITER and Wendelstein 7-X. This provides our students with the opportunity to put their skills to use in cutting-edge research, preparing them for their role as the fusion engineers of the future.
