Why enroll in this program?
Asset n° 1
International program, strong support from the nuclear industries, program built in partnership with renowned engineering schools
Acquire in-depth scientific knowledge in the field of nuclear energy through a multidisciplinary approach. Professors are mainly experts from the nuclear industry: EDF, FRAMATOME, ORANO, CEA, ANDRA...
Opportunities, for an internship or a job, are numerous both in large companies and in the supply chain. Approximately 80% of students find a job directly at the end of their internship.
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),
Developing new fourth-generation processes and systems,
Managing waste and decommissioning.
The first year is splitted in 2 tracks: Physics and Engineering and Chemistry and Engineering. The second year offers 5 choices of specialization. The courses are complemented by an internship at a research laboratory where students have the opportunity to put the theoretical knowledge they have acquired into practice.
This first-year Master’s program enables students to:
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.
This second-year program enables students to specialize by choosing one of five majors:
Nuclear Plant & Design
Decommissioning and Waste Management
Nuclear Reactor & Physics Engineering
After graduating from the Nuclear Energy Master’s program, students will be equipped to build a career in the nuclear energy industry, in particular, the operation of electronuclear power plants:
Nuclear Plant Design Track: Research and development, design, construction, consulting offices, research in higher education.
Decommissioning and Waste Management Track: Consultant engineer (define the nature and stages of decommissioning or devise storage during the decommission), implementation engineer (direct and oversee on-site operations), operations engineer for waste storage facilities, project engineer in charge of decommissioning operations, safety engineer responsible for setting onsite regulations for waste management
Fuel Cycle Track: Engineer (at a raw uranium production site or factory involved in fuel cycle: refinement, enrichment, or recycling); design, engineer, operate, and monitor waste storage sites and nuclear power plant operations
Nuclear Reactor Physics and Engineering Track: Engineer in the nuclear sector, researcher in the field of nuclear reactors
Operations Track: Operations engineer, head of operations, safety engineer, head of maintenance, or environmental process engineer
Completion of a Bachelor of Science at Institut Polytechnique de Paris or equivalent in France or abroad.
English: B2 level
