The international Bachelor in Nuclear Engineering is a one-year nuclear specialization programme 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. 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.
- All courses are given in English in an international environment
- Courses are strongly oriented to problem solving and team work
- All professors are active researchers at the LPSC or other laboratories
- Students will have a high-level qualification, which enables them to enroll and successfully continue their studies in the Master programs
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:

- 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.
FURTHER LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
With the Bachelor degree, it is possible to undertake a master degree everywhere in the world. At Grenoble INP-Phelma, registration to MaNuEn (Materials science for Nuclear Energy) master is possible.
