Nuclear energy plays an essential role in the global low-carbon energy mix. It is vital to the successful energy transition – and is a dynamic sector in which to build a lifelong career in sustainable energy.
The Nuclear Energy (EMINE) programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology deepens your technical knowledge, while broadening your understanding of the wider energy sector and the societal, economic and environmental impacts of nuclear energy.
Whether it’s leading the design of new reactor types, managing the safe decommissioning of older plants, developing innovative new policy, or planning effective waste management, this nuclear energy programme equips you to meet the challenges facing the global industry.
With courses given by industry experts, on-site work and practicals, and field visits, the programme also gives you unrivalled opportunities to engage directly with major industrial players and research institutes. More than half of your time on this nuclear energy programme is spent with industrial partners that include Areva, EDF and Endesa and the CEA, one of the most important research centres in nuclear energy in Europe.
The nuclear industry is truly international and requires a global mindset. The programme is an opportunity to start building your international network by working closely with fellow students from around the world, while the business-focused elements of the curriculum explore how to work in and manage multi-cultural teams.
The programme gives you a comprehensive understanding of the key issues surrounding nuclear energy, and opens up a wide variety of career paths, including the key areas of design and construction, operation and maintenance, decommissioning and waste management.
The strong focus on business skills and innovation will enable you to readily take on managerial and leadership positions. Alternatively, the programme is the first step to your career in research and PhD work.
