The Nuclear Engineering programme at Ghent University consits of a compulsory part of general courses, that needs to be complemented with three elective courses.
These elective courses are used to either broaden or deepen a theme. Exercises and hands-on sessions in the specialised laboratories of SCK•CEN complement the theoretical classes and strengthen the development of nuclear skills and attitudes in a research environment. Various technical visits are organised to research and industrial nuclear facilities.
- To train postgraduate students to become expert in the study, the design and operation of nuclear installations (reactors, power plants, nuclear fuel plants, reserach installations, etc.), with the inclusion of due safety aspects and the protection against radiation.
