WHY ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?

Asset n° 1 

Acquire in-depth scientific knowledge in the field of nuclear energy

Asset n°2

Undertake a research internship in a laboratory

Asset n°3

Benefit from learning through a multidisciplinary approach

This Nuclear Energy Master’s program provides knowledge about the current and future needs of the nuclear industry: optimize the performance of existing nuclear reactors, design third-generation nuclear installations (reactors and factories for fuel cycle), develop new fourth-generation processes and systems, operate installations, manage decommissioning and waste. These courses are complemented by an internship at a research laboratory where students will have the opportunity to put the theoretical knowledge they have acquired into practice.

Objectives

This second-year program enables students to specialize by choosing one of five majors:

  • Nuclear Plant Design (NPD)
  • Decommissioning and Waste Management (DWM)
  • Fuel Cycle (FC) 
  • Nuclear Reactor Physics and Engineering (NRPE)
  • Operations (O)

After graduating from the Nuclear Energy Master’s program, students will be equipped to build a career in the nuclear energy industry, in particular, the operation of electronuclear power plants:

  • Track NPD: Research and development, design, construction, consulting offices, research in higher education.
  • Track DWM: Consultant engineer (define the nature and stages of decommissioning or devise storage during the decommission), implementation engineer (direct and oversee on-site operations), operations engineer for waste storage facilities, project engineer in charge of decommissioning operations, safety engineer responsible for setting onsite regulations for waste management
  • Track FC: Engineer (at a raw uranium production site or factory involved in fuel cycle: refinement, enrichment or recycling); design, engineer, operate and monitor waste storage sites and nuclear power plant operations
  • Track NRPE: Engineer in the nuclear sector, researcher in the field of nuclear reactors
  • Track O: Operations engineer, head of operations, safety engineer, head of maintenance or environmental process engineer

Course details will be available when admission opens.
