Overview

Throughout the Nuclear Energy Engineering MSc degree from KTH Royal Institute of Technology you will learn how to design, operate, manage and develop nuclear facilities. Graduates also develop the future of nuclear power engineering with expertise in generation IV reactors and small modular reactors.

The master’s programme in Nuclear Energy Engineering at KTH Royal Institute of Technology serves the nuclear engineering-related industry worldwide in its growing need for competent nuclear engineers and researchers. Nuclear engineering is an increasing sector in Europe, as there is a need to maintain and upgrade the existing nuclear power plants. At the same time, there is renewed interest and support from the public and policymakers for nuclear power. Also, new nuclear power technologies and innovations currently being developed promise to deliver clean, reliable and affordable energy that can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet the growing energy demand. The high number of courses and students make this programme one of the largest nuclear engineering programmes in the world with students from all corners of the earth.

The programme consists of several mandatory courses to provide a strong foundation in physics and technology of nuclear reactors and power plants, nuclear power safety, sustainable energy transformation technologies, and radiation protection and dosimetry. You can choose from a great variety of unique courses focusing on different aspects of nuclear power engineering. These include generation IV reactors, small modular reactors, the nuclear fuel cycle, Monte Carlo methods and simulations in nuclear technology, reactor and power plant simulations, thermal-hydraulics, radiation damage in materials, leadership for a safe nuclear power industry, chemistry and physics of nuclear fuels, and numerical methods in nuclear engineering.

Many courses are based on modern teaching methods, such as the flipped classroom approach, and utilise computer-supported interactive assignments and examinations, lecture video recording, and dedicated e-books. Our courses also utilise the APROS simulator – an advanced simulation tool for nuclear reactors and power plants.

Career opportunities:

Nuclear power undergoes continuous development as an essential part of carbon-free electricity production. Many reactors are currently under construction worldwide. A new generation of nuclear reactors is being developed and envisioned to answer the growing need for safe, economic and sustainable electricity production.

Students of our master’s programme are highly regarded by industry, authorities and research establishments in Sweden, Europe and worldwide. In Sweden, graduates work at companies such as ABB, Vattenfall Nuclear AB, EON, Westinghouse, Forsmark Kraftgrupp, Ringhals, OKG, Radiation Safety Authority (SSM), Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management (SKB), Vysus Group, AFRY, Studsvik, Kiwa Inspecta Nuclear AB and other.

Our programme also prepares you for a career in research or continued studies towards a doctoral degree. New positions for doctoral students open in the nuclear engineering field at KTH every year. Our students have also gone to PhD studies at other prominent universities in Europe and USA.
