- Welcome by the director of the ETSEIB-UPC, Ms. Neus Cónsul.
- Inaugural Presentation The Nuclear Safety Council by the commissioner of the CSN, Mr. Javier Dies.
- Inaugural Presentation The Future of Nuclear Energy: Opportunities and Challenges, by the director-general of Nuclear Generation at Endesa, Mr. Juan María Moreno
- Speech by the director of the MNE and EMINE, Mr. Lluis Batet.
- CSN "Cátedra Argos" Award for the outstanding performance of a student on the MNE or EMINE
The master's degree in Nuclear Engineering aims to provide students with the skills required to take on positions of responsibility in companies and research centres in the nuclear sector. Students will gain thorough knowledge of the theoretical and practical aspects of nuclear engineering and of the technology associated with energy production by nuclear fission chain reaction. Students will acquire a broad understanding of the entire chain of energy conversion of nuclear fuel into final energy and of the life cycle of facilities, from uranium mining and initial plant construction to spent fuel management and decommissioning. Students will become familiar with regulations and nuclear safety culture, develop a strategic view of the sector and acquire the ability to understand problems and make decisions.
Approximately half of the lectures of the master’s degree are taught by nuclear industry experts from companies, research centres and other universities. Work placement will allow students to work with experts who will share their knowledge and expertise.
This master’s degree is included in the InnoEnergy / Campus Energia educational project, as the European Master in Nuclear Energy (EMINE).
