Summary

The Master MaNuEn - Materials Science for Nuclear Energy is an international master designed for students wishing to pursue a career in the nuclear industry, in R & D or working for research organizations. MaNuEn is a 2-year master's degree aiming at covering the specificities of materials used in a nuclear environment, mainly nuclear fuels and components, with a particular focus on the durability of materials under irradiation. The second year of the MaNuEn Master is common with the Master of Science in Nuclear Energy - EMINE (first year at KTH in Sweden or the UPC in Spain) Master of Science Innovation in Nuclear Energy - EMINE


Strong points


  • Co-accréditation by INSTN, label I2EN
  • 50% of courses given by engineer and researcher from nuclear industry
  • Priviliged contact with R&D teams of CEA and EDF
  • On site courses at EDF (2 weeks) and CEA (3 weeks)


PRESENTATION OF THE MANUEN MASTER


Objectives

Train engineers or researchers on aspects related to materials and their sustainability in the nuclear field.

Further information


120 ECTS fully taught in english (IELTS 5.5 required).

More than 50% of the courses are given by industrialists (CEA or EDF).

Conventional fees are about 520 euros plus a participation fee of 4000 euros.

  • Training partners

    The master is co-accredited by the INSTN (National Institute of Nuclear Science and Technology). The master also obtained the certification of the I2EN (International Institute of Nuclear Energy) for the second year.

    The partner companies of the master are EDF with its research center "Material Aging Institute" as well as CEA and INSTN. These partners offer topics for second year internship.

- Internship (11 ECTS)

 

M2

The content of the second-year program and courses has been established in collaboration with EDF engineers and CEA engineers. The second year takes place over 2 semesters: all the courses of the master are taught in the first semester (September to January) : 2 specialized courses taught at CEA Cadarache (3 weeks in December) and Material Aging Instiute (2 weeks in January at EDF Renardières) are part of the curriculum. The second semester is devoted to an internship of 5 months minimum in industry or research laboratory.

- Reactor concepts and materials (6 ECTS)
- Material ageing in nuclear environment (6 ECTS)
- Components at EDF + energy issues (6 ECTS)
- nuclear fuels at CEA (6 ECTS)
- language and project (6 ECTS)
- Internship / master thesis (30 ECTS)
