Reactor physics is the core subject of nuclear engineering. It involves, among other things, the determination of nuclear fuel element configuration and the design of mechanical and control devices needed to attain a controlled chain reaction in the core for the production of power. Nuclear engineering includes the study of processes related to the controlled release of fission and fusion energy and the conversion of nuclear energy into other useful forms of energy such as electrical energy.
