This European Master is at the heart of InnoEnergy - a strongly integrated alliance of European key players from education, research and industry in the field of sustainable energy.
InnoEnergy aims at developing an innovation and entrepreneurship-driven culture to boost sustainable energy innovation in Europe. Thus, InnoEnergy will strive for the development of leaders, by building more agile and dynamic interfaces between industry and academia and promoting entrepreneurial mindset among students, researchers and business people.
The ongoing advances in nuclear science and technology play the central role in the development of future nuclear power systems, and are also crucial for how successfully we can handle the nuclear waste problem in a responsible manner. From this perspective, it is of vital importance to offer high quality education to the next generation of nuclear scientists and engineers.
This master combines outstanding technical training in nuclear energy along with best practices in innovation. It includes a mobility within the academic partners (KTH, UPC, Grenoble INP and Paris) as well as a close collaboration with the main actors of the nuclear industry in Europe. This leads to lectures by professionals, in-house trainings and internships for the students.
Project manager in the nuclear industry
Nuclear engineer with a knowledge ranging from design and construction, to operation and maintenance, to power station decommissioning and waste management of the fuel cycle.
Researcher, continue with a PhD.
Students spend a comprehensive first year in Sweden (KTH) or Spain (UPC) learning topics such as fundamentals of nuclear engineering, safety, radiation protection, all of them mandatory for any nuclear engineer.
In additition, first year students attend a summer school on innovation and energy management given by Grenoble Ecole de Management. This training will provide the students with an overview of innovation issues in energy markets in general and in nuclear technology in particular. The summer school will gather students from both 1st year universities ( UPC and KTH), allowing all EMINE students to get to know each other.
During the second year, students will specialize either in Materials science for nuclear energy at Grenoble INP or in nuclear reactor physics and engineering, nuclear plant design, operations, fuel cycle, or decommissioning and waste management in Paris.
Partnerships: GEM, Grenoble, KTH Stockholm, UPC Barcelona and a consortium of 5 universities in Paris
The strong partnership with engineers and researchers of EDF R&D and CEA working on materials for the nuclear industry will allow the students to refine their professional project and will facilitate contacts to find an internship at the end of the second year.
