The Nuclear Power Engineering from Warsaw University of Technology is a continuation of Bachelor studies in the field of Power Engineering, with specialisation in and focus on Nuclear Power. It introduces knowledge of nuclear physics, nuclear fluids and reactors, NPP operations and safety, and prepares students for careers in energy sector companies.


The Nuclear Power Engineering from Warsaw University of Technology of the studies is based on advanced theory and engineering methods. Students learn about recent achievements in the field of nuclear power and the methods and tools that prepare them for taking managing positions in industry, or to undertake research activities. 

Special attention is given to modelling and simulation methods and codes. The program is realised in close collaboration with foreign and national universities, research institutes and companies, and is supported by visiting professors and industrial specialists. 

The last semester of the 4-semester study is devoted to a research based internship at a nuclear installation, directly connected with the preparation of the master diploma thesis.


Graduates of Nuclear Power Engineering receive profound education in the area of nuclear reactor physics, nuclear reactor modelling and simulation, nuclear instrumentation and control, contemporary and future nuclear reactor systems, and nuclear power plant safety, operation and maintenance. 

They are prepared for creative work and research in the field of design, operation and control of nuclear power and other nuclear installations, as well as of classical power and related installations. This work could be focused on energy conversion processes in power machines and equipment, conducting modernisation of systems and facilities, implementation of new technologies, establishing small enterprises and their management.
