Nuclear Energy

A masters program in nuclear energy reflects the strong international revival of interest in nuclear energy. It aims at providing students with necessary knowledge required in the nuclear industry. The program also prepares students for research and development in Nuclear Technology. The uniqueness of this program is that it provides enough knowledge in all the fields associated with nuclear energy and nuclear technology.

A masters program in Nuclear Energy prepares individuals to apply both mathematical and scientific principles in design, development and evaluation of systems for controlling and manipulating nuclear energy. These include nuclear power plant design, design of fission reactor, reactor control and safety systems design. They also include power transfer systems, containment vessels and structures design. The study involves the analysis of related engineering problems like fission and fusion processes, human and environmental factors, construction, and operational considerations.

This program provides students with essential skills required to decommission old nuclear power stations and manage the waste. The study covers all the measures designed to protect both people and the environment from elements associated with nuclear activities. A masters program in Nuclear Energy notably provides an opportunity in posts such as: design engineering, in particular designing the nature and phasing of decommissioning operations, or designing waste storage facilities; performance engineering whose role is to conduct and monitor on-site operations; and engineering related to the operations of waste storage facilities.

Masters in Nuclear Energy. Program Profile WMD Nonproliferation, Nuclear Policy and Global Security is the first Russian-American master’s program at MGIMO, taught by leading academics and practitioners from Russia, the United States, and other countries. The Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS), Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO), and PIR Center have partnered to develop the Dual Degree in Nonproliferation Studies. Our Aim The program prepares students for professional careers in the nonproliferation field in national governments, international organizations, academia, think tanks, and the private sector. The interdisciplinary curriculum focuses on global security, history, science and technology, area studies, public policy, and research methods—with a particular emphasis on practical skills. Intended Outcomes The program will provide students with essential competencies: advanced knowledge of WMD nonproliferation regimes, both global and regional knowledge about peaceful uses of nuclear energy and how to minimize potential proliferation risks familiarity with best practices in nuclear and WMD security knowledge of arms control and disarmament knowledge of terrorism and tools for countering it quantitative analysis skills foreign language skills strong practical skills from internship opportunities in Moscow, Monterey, Washington, D.C., Geneva, and Vienna Unique Courses and Program Structure Students will take classes at MGIMO in Moscow in the fall semester of the first year. They will take classes at MIIS in Monterey in the second and third semesters (spring of the first year and fall of the second year). The fourth and final semester will be devoted to an internship and thesis preparation,... [-]

Master 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 also 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 (ParisTech – a cluster of universities in Paris) or in Grenoble (Grenoble Institute of Technology – INP) resulting in a double diploma degree. Programme outlineCompulsory 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.Degree projectStudents will complete the two-year Master’s programme with a degree project. The project and its resultant thesis may be performed at the Albanova University Centre (KTH), or at an external research facility, in a company in Sweden or in another country. With the growing need for competent employees in the nuclear industry, there are many opportunities to... [-]
