Master's programme in Nuclear Energy Engineering
The master’s programme in Nuclear Energy Engineering offers students an extensive and detailed education in the key areas pertaining to nuclear technology. After graduation, students will be well-prepared for future positions within the advanced nuclear technology field, or in a nuclear science and technology research environment.
The master’s programme in Nuclear Energy Engineering at KTH is a part of the European Master in Innovative Nuclear Energy (EMINE). The first year of study at KTH can be combined with a second year of study at the top French universities either in Paris (ENSTA – a cluster of universities in Paris) or in Grenoble (Grenoble INP) resulting in a double diploma degree.
The master’s programme in Nuclear Energy Engineering at KTH has also Dual diploma agreements with Korean Advanced Institute for Science and Technology (KAIST) in Daejeon (Republic of Korea) and with Tsinghua University in Beijing (China). Dual diploma agreements imply that students get Dual Diploma after gaining 60 ECTS credits at KTH and another 60 ECTS credits from respective universities.
Nuclear Energy Engineering at KTH
Compulsory courses will provide all students in the programme with a strong foundation in the reactor physics and technology field. Research-oriented students will have several possibilities to choose courses in preparation for work in reactor physics research or in a nuclear engineering research environment. At the same time, students interested in more industry-related nuclear engineering can choose courses preparing them for a position in the industry, with an optional management-oriented specialisation.
With advances in science and technology, nuclear energy is increasingly regarded as an eminent part of the global energy-environment equation needed to satisfy growing demands for energy in a rapidly developing world. Undoubtedly nuclear energy, as well as other non-energy applications of nuclear science and technology, will continue and further increase its important role in serving society.
The truly international environment of this master’s programme gives graduating students a body of knowledge and skills which will forever be precious commodities in the globalised world. Graduating students will be eagerly recruited by industry, authorities and research establishments in Sweden, Europe and worldwide.
