The Advanced Master of Nuclear Engineering is a demanding programme where students with high-level backgrounds in engineering investigate highly theoretical subjects such as neutron physics, fluid flow and heat transfer modelling, and apply them to reactor design, nuclear safety and plant operation & control.
At a more interdisciplinary level, the programme includes important areas of material science, with a particular interest in the fuel cycle. Radiation protection and nuclear measurements are included in the programme. All subjects are taught by academics appointed by the partner universities, while the practical exercises and laboratory sessions are supervised by members of the researcher staff of SCK•CEN. The final thesis offers an opportunity for an internship in industry or a research laboratory. BNEN grants are available for full-time students.

Candidates holding a foreign Master degree in Engineering can be admitted after evaluation and approval by the Teaching Committee and with an observance of the procedural rules of the respective partner universities.
Additionally, in order to be admitted, you need to be proficient in English.
The registration form, motivation letter, transcripts of records, and a CV should be submitted to the Belgian Nuclear Higher Education Network (BNEN) Teaching Committee.
STEP 2: Registration in one of the six partner universities.
After approval by the Teaching Committee students need to register at one of the six universities (for example the Vrije Universiteit Brussel).
STEP 3: Access to the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre.
All candidates will be screened by the Belgian Federal Agency for Nuclear Control for clearance and access to the nuclear infrastructure of SCK•CEN. Admission to the programme will depend on clearance and access being granted.
