The international Bachelor in Nuclear Engineering is a one-year nuclear programme. Upon completion of the programme, students will be awarded a diploma from the Grenoble INP – Phelma Engineering School.
All courses are taught in English. The programme is based on a series of interdisciplinary and nuclear specific courses such as:
- nuclear sciences (interaction of radiation with matter, nuclear reactors, and nuclear instrumentation, etc.);
- engineering sciences (mathematics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, etc.).
The goal is to prepare students to perform competently in occupational areas such as reactor operations, health physics, quality assurance, instrumentation and control technology, as well as other related areas in the nuclear technology field.
Students will be able to perform competently in occupational areas such as reactor operations, health physics, quality assurance, instrumentation and control technology, as well as in related areas in the nuclear technology field.
This programme is designed for two types of students:
- Those who have finished a three-year bachelor degree and want to acquire a specialization in nuclear engineering;
- or those pursuing a four-year degree and want to do their last year in a highly specialized environment dedicated to nuclear engineering.
Obtaining a Bachelor of Nuclear Engineering may be a first step towards a promising future career. The students will qualify (often after completing a Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering or a PhD degree) for an interesting, multidisciplinary profession with excellent job opportunities in industry, research, and regulatory bodies. Subject areas, like the safe and reliable operation of existing and new reactors, the development of novel reactor types, the sustainable supply of nuclear fuel, the closure of the fuel cycle, the disposal of radioactive waste without harm to the environment, and many others, represent scientific and technical challenges for motivated young engineers and researchers.
