MSc Nuclear Energy (EIT InnoEnergy)
The joint master's programme in Nuclear Energy educates tomorrow's nuclear engineers in how to address the key technical, social and environmental challenges faced by the industry. Going beyond the scope of a traditional nuclear education, the programme helps tomorrow’s engineers understand nuclear power in the context of a diverse energy mix. The programme is offered by seven European universities through EIT InnoEnergy.
Nuclear Energy at KTH
A new generation of advanced nuclear technologies offer unparalleled power, speed and scalability to dramatically accelerate the transition to a low or even post-carbon energy landscape. At the same time, innovations in waste management have dramatically reduced risk and negative impact on the environment.
Experts across the globe coincide on the potential of nuclear energy in the fight against climate change. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) highlights the need for nuclear energy to achieve a rapid decarbonisation. In fact, the four most promising pathways that could limit global warming by 1.5°C by 2050 include nuclear energy. The possibilities are clear. And enormously exciting...
To drive innovation and accelerate safe and effective deployment, we now have an urgent need for a new generation of engineers – change leaders who have the big-picture understanding, the world-class technical skills, the entrepreneurial tools and the innovation mindset to fully leverage this opportunity. To overcome the challenges. And to play a critical role in forging a post-carbon future. The joint master’s progrmme in Nuclear Energy is your fast track to a world-class career at the cutting edge of innovation in the global energy transition.
The programme is offered at the following universities:
- KTH Royal Institute of Technology, in Sweden
- UPC: Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech, Barcelona, Spain
- Grenoble INP Institute of Technology, France
- Université Paris Saclay, France
- Université Paris Sciences et Lettres (PSL), France
- École des Ponts ParisTech (ENPC), France
- Institut Polytechnique de Paris, France
The nuclear industry is truly international and requires a global mindset. The programme is an opportunity to start building your international network by working closely with fellow students from around the world, while the business-focused elements of the curriculum explore how to work in and manage multi-cultural teams.
The programme gives you a comprehensive understanding of the key issues surrounding nuclear energy, and opens up a wide variety of career paths, including the key areas of design and construction, operation and maintenance, decommissioning and waste management.
The strong focus on business skills and innovation will enable you to readily take on managerial and leadership positions. Alternatively, the programme is the first step to your career in research and PhD work.
