Overview

The need for manpower in the nuclear industry is increasing due to new power plant projects, new applications of nuclear energy, and the long-term use of existing power plants.

This field has a continuous need for professionals to oversee nuclear power plants, including reactors, power conversion systems, and safety systems, taking into consideration and putting into practice advances in science and technology.

Nuclear power is a key component in the transition towards clean and feasible energy systems. Nuclear power has an excellent track record in providing abundant and dispatchable clean electricity for the electrification of the society. Nuclear heating and nuclear propulsion are emerging as new applications. In all applications, nuclear power must be safe.

Nuclear Engineering studies at LUT University  focus on three aspects: nuclear power plant engineering, nuclear safety, and reactors for new applications – including next generation technologies.

This Master's programme will give you a comprehensive understanding of how to utilise nuclear power safely. You will learn how to design nuclear reactors. Nuclear power plant engineering focuses on how different components in nuclear power plants work together, what specific requirements apply to components used in nuclear power plants, how to design for radiation protection, and how to consider the life cycle of power plants, including fuel and waste management.

Career:

Our graduates have a clear understanding of what is required of safe nuclear power systems and how nuclear power is utilised to change the overall energy system towards cleaner processes.

Graduates from our programme work in every field related to nuclear power: in power production, in research and development, for nuclear industry subcontractors, for regulatory authorities, for companies building nuclear power plants, and for companies providing fuel and waste management and other services to nuclear operators.

Graduates have versatile professional capabilities. They may work as project engineers, designers, analysts, developers, and managers, eventually even achieving top management positions. LUT graduates typically deal with power plant systems or components, company work processes, safety and regulations, etc.

General requirements

  • Bachelor of Science in Technology OR closely related to Technology - Completed in a University (all countries)
  • Bachelor of Engineering - Completed in a University of Applied Sciences (EU/EEA countries)

Regarding to both the degrees mentioned above:

  • The degree must be equivalent to a similar Finnish Bachelor's Degree regarding to number of academic years and ECTS credits.
  • The degree must give you eligibility to apply to university level Master's studies in the country where the degree was completed in.
  • Having completed a Master's Degree still makes you eligible to apply, but only when applying with a Bachelor's Degree.
