This nuclear engineering textbook series aims to serve as global education standard for all universities that have a department of nuclear engineering and all research laboratories and companies related to nuclear engineering.

As global warming issues are strongly being advocated, nuclear power is examined again as a low-carbon and ecology-friendly energy source. The so-called “Nuclear Power Renaissance” has begun. Industrial countries with nuclear power are not confined to domestic sales but are working toward global sales strategies of nuclear power plants, involving many nations. Against such a background, while nuclear power industry develops globally, the required human resources education should keep up. However, no English textbook with the potential to become the global standard has been published so far, although awaited for a long time. Recognizing the demand, Japanese nuclear power specialists concentrated their expertise and a Japanese nuclear engineering textbook series was published under the cooperation of the University of Tokyo, the Japan Atomic Energy Agency and other domestic organizations related to nuclear engineering. Japan has steadily advanced the research and development of all fields of nuclear engineering. This is reflected in the broad coverage of the series, which includes not only nuclear reactors, but also the nuclear fuel cycle, radiation use, maintenance, etc.. This English version of the Japanese series serves domestic as well as foreign institutions.
