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.

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... [-]
