The Nuclear Engineering programme from University of Pisa is based on the long tradition in teaching Nuclear Engineering at the University of Pisa, started in 1960.


Key Features

The study matters cover all the important areas necessary for acquiring high-level competences in the field, including Reactor Physics, Nuclear Reactor Thermal-Hydraulics, Structural Mechanics, Radiation Measurement and Health Effects, Nuclear Reactor Power Plant Technology, Nuclear Materials, Nuclear Reactor Control and Operation, Nuclear Reactor Safety and Reliability.

Containing the basic matters required for a sound education in Nuclear Engineering, the Nuclear Engineering programme from University of Pisa already granted to many of its past-students the possibility to obtain the certification of European Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering (EMSNE). This is the certification released by the European Nuclear Education Network (ENEN) to Nuclear Engineers with a good background, who also fulfilled minimum requirements of mobility for courses or thesis work at European organisations belonging to the Association.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The study programme is structured into two years of 60 ECTS credits each, including the final thesis work.
  • In addition, a sentence has been added to the Regulations in order to accept personalised curricula that could result also from exchanges with foreign Universities, also within ENEN and FuseNet
  • At the moment the course is fully offered in English language, but just a minimum knowledge of Italian language is requested to attend the lectures of few side examinations, whenever required, since the basic jargon of the matters is in English. 
  • The tight network of international contacts of the teachers in the course allows performing part of the thesis work in cooperation with or at renowned institutions in Italy and abroad.
