WHY ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?

Asset n° 1 

Acquire in-depth scientific knowledge relating to nuclear energy

Asset n°2

Undertake a research internship in a laboratory

Asset n°3

Benefit from learning through a multidisciplinary approach

The Nuclear Energy Master’s program provides knowledge on the current and future needs of the nuclear industry: optimizing the performance of existing nuclear reactors, designing third-generation nuclear installations (reactors and factories for fuel cycle), develop new fourth-generation processes and systems, operate installations, manage waste and decommissioning. The 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 first-year Master’s program enables students to:

  • Acquire the knowledge and essential skills to enter the second-year program of the Nuclear Energy Master
  • Enhance their knowledge in nuclear physics, material science, thermohydraulic, neutronics and nuclear reactor physics
  • Gain knowledge in more specific fields such as mathematics, thermodynamics, economy of energy, data processing and project management

After completing and graduating from the Nuclear Energy Master’s program, students will be able to build a career in the nuclear energy sector:

Research and development

Decommissioning

Safety operator

Waste management

Radioprotection

Design nuclear installations or reactors

Construction

Consulting offices

Research in higher education
