Program Description

Master in Nuclear Energy EMINE

KTH Royal Institute of Technology

The joint master's programme in Nuclear Energy (EMINE) is offered by four European universities through InnoEnergy. Nuclear energy has a significant place in a low-carbon, global energy mix – and is a dynamic sector in which to build a lifelong career in sustainable energy. The programme deepens your technical knowledge while broadening your understanding of the wider energy sector and the societal, economic and environmental impacts of nuclear energy.

Nuclear Energy at KTH

Whether it is leading the design of new reactor types, managing the safe decommissioning of older plants, developing innovative new policy, or planning effective waste management, the joint master's programme in Nuclear Energy equips you to meet the challenges facing the world’s nuclear energy industry.

In addition, the programme gives you unrivaled opportunities to engage directly with major industrial players and research institutes through a series of activities throughout the programme. Areva, EDF, Endesa, and Vattenfall all take an active role in the programme, alongside the CEA, one of the most important research centers in nuclear energy in Europe.

The joint master’s programme in Nuclear Energy is an international programme for an international industry. You will join students from all over the world for two years at two different universities and one of Europe’s leading business schools. After successfully completing the programme and your thesis, you will receive a double diploma: a master’s degree from two of the following institutes:

  • Master Material Science for Nuclear Energy, from INP: Grenoble Institute of Technology, France
  • Master of Science, from KTH: Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
  • Master of Science Nuclear Energy, from Université Paris-Saclay, France
  • Master of Nuclear Engineering, from UPC: Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech, Spain

Summer School

At the end of this first year, all students gather for a four-week summer school at the Grenoble École de Management in France to explore innovation issues within the energy market in general and the nuclear industry in particular.

During the summer school, you can also attend guest lectures given by experts from the nuclear industry and take part in field visits to nuclear, research and manufacturing facilities.

The students in this programme can specialize in the following areas:

  • Materials science for nuclear energy
  • Nuclear reactor physics and engineering
  • Nuclear plant design
  • Operations
  • Fuel cycle
  • Decommissioning and waste management

The programme is accredited by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).

Careers

The joint master’s programme in Nuclear Energy will give you a comprehensive understanding of the key issues surrounding nuclear energy, and gives graduates a wide choice of career paths, including the key areas of design and construction, operation and maintenance, decommissioning and waste management.

Thanks to the strong focus on business skills and innovation, our graduates are readily able to take on managerial and leadership positions. Alternatively, the programme is the first step to a career in research and a doctoral candidature.
