NE/NEPIA Nuclear Energy Production & Industrial Applications specializes in nuclear sciences applications including energy production (power reactors) and industrial applications (particles beams technology, instrumentation, etc). A particular focus is put on the safety and radioprotection, to be considered in the management of a large project in this field.
Acquire basic knowledge necessary for understanding nuclear energy production (power reactors) and industrial applications, e.g. accelerators, cyclotrons, etc.
Develop competencies in reactor operation, maintenance and safety issues including radioprotection.
Develop competencies in particles beams production and qualification.
Develop competencies in nuclear radiations applications: instrumentation, non destructive control, security, etc.
Develop an awareness of societal considerations related to nuclear energy production.
Take into account societal issues related to nuclear energy production.
