Chalmers offers an international Masters program in nuclear engineering. The objective of the programme is to provide both basic and advanced knowledge on the physics, chemistry and technology of nuclear power, the nuclear fuel cycle, and other useful applications of radionuclides. The programme is open to Swedish and foreign students with a bachelor’s degree within engineering physics, chemical, mechanical or electrical engineering or equivalent.
KTH provides an international Masters programme in nuclear energy engineering. This programme includes eight compulsory courses and 12 elective courses which provide a consistent structure of the education in nuclear science and technology. There are approximately 25 PhD students working on fission-power related thesis projects at KTH. There are also courses these students can attend in addition to their specialized studies.
At Uppsala the courses in nuclear energy technology are provided within the masters programmes at Uppsala University, in particular Applied Physics, Energy Systems and Systems in Technology and Society, and also in cooperation with KSU, responsible for education of operators for Swedish nuclear power plants.
A Bachelors program on nuclear engineering starts autumn 2010, in the form of a third-year specialization within the existing mechanical engineering program. Students with at least two years of studies in mechanical or electric engineering at any Swedish university can apply to this program. The teaching is provided both by academic teachers and industry specialists, and part of the studies are undertaken at industrial facilities.
