Nuclear Energy Engineering at KTH
Our programme serves the nuclear engineering-related industry worldwide in its growing need for competent nuclear engineers and researchers. Our 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, our programme is one of the largest nuclear engineering programmes in the world. Our students come from countries all around the world, joining our programme directly, within the EMINE programme, or via dual diploma and double degree agreements with many other universities in Europe and Asia.
Students can choose from a great variety of elective and very unique courses, such as generation IV reactors, small reactors, Monte Carlo methods and simulations in nuclear technology, reactor and power plant simulations, nuclear reactor dynamics and stability, thermal-hydraulics in nuclear energy engineering, radiation damage in materials, leadership for safe nuclear power industry, chemistry and physics of nuclear fuels, elements of the back-end of the nuclear fuel cycle (organized as a summer school), and more.
Many courses are based on modern teaching methods, such as the flipped classroom approach, and utilize computer-supported interactive assignments and examinations, lecture video recording, and dedicated e-books. Our courses also utilize the APROS simulator – an advanced simulation tool for nuclear reactors and power plants.
All lecturing staff are actively involved in research projects in a broad international cooperation. We conduct experiments in the areas of severe accident management, heavy metal coolant technology, nuclear fuel materials, thermal hydraulics, etc.
Our programme cooperates with a number of industrial partners in Sweden and abroad. Students can choose to carry out master degree projects in companies like Westinghouse, Vattenfall, OKG, Forsmark, and other.
This is a two year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science. The programme is given mainly at KTH Campus in Stockholm by the School of Engineering Sciences (at KTH).
