About

The Nuclear Energy Engineering programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology provides you with outstanding career opportunities and excellent opportunities for doctoral studies all over the world. 

Overview

The Nuclear Energy Engineering programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology serves the nuclear engineering-related industry worldwide in its growing need for competent nuclear engineers and researchers.

The programme gives students a strong foundation in nuclear reactor physics and technology, nuclear power safety, sustainable energy transformation technologies, and radiation protection and dosimetry.

In terms of the number of students and courses, the programme is one of the largest nuclear engineering programmes in the world. 

Students come from countries all around the world, joining our programme directly, within the EIT InnoEnergy programme EMINE, or via dual diploma and double degree agreements with many other universities in Europe and Asia.

After graduation you can pursue careers as: nuclear engineer (design, development and operation of nuclear power plants), consultant or analyst (nuclear reactor safety, operation and computation support), researcher (development of new generation of reactors) and manager (leadership roles at power plants and nuclear facilities).

Career

Nuclear power undergoes a continuous development as an important part of carbon-free electricity production. 

Many reactors are currently under construction worldwide, and a new generation of nuclear reactors is being developed and envisioned to be the answer to the growing need for a safe, economical 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, students are enrolled by established companies such as ABB, Vattenfall Nuclear AB, EON, Westinghouse, Forsmark Kraftgrupp, Ringhals, Radiation Safety Authority (SSM), Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management (SKB), ÅF, Lloyd's Register, Studsvik, Kiwa Inspecta Nuclear AB and other.
