About

The Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne offers a high level of interdisciplinarity, ranging from nuclear, neutron and reactor physics and radiation protection to thermo-fluid dynamics, reactor safety and materials science.

Overview

Nuclear technology, particularly the generation of energy via nuclear fission, is a high-tech sector which involves extremely high levels of refinement of the raw material natural uranium. The entire energy generation chain is very complex, not least because of the comprehensive safety technology and safety culture it entails.
