Nuclear Energy

Graduate (Master of Engineering) studies in field of Nuclear Energy ensure thorough preparation in the fields of technologies used to produce nuclear energy. The course’s contents enable deep understanding of phenomena occurring in nuclear reactors and nuclear reactor technologies. Other important topics within the course being nuclear safety and radiation protection, nuclear fuel cycle and nuclear regulations. During the studies self-reliant problem solving skills will be emphasised. Due to wide range of elective courses student will be able to determine which aspects of nuclear technologies they want to study in more detail.

Nuclear energy is a perspective course that covers the needs of an emerging labour market resulting from introduction of nuclear power in Poland as stable, low-carbon energy source that is necessary for decarbonisation of the economy and climate change mitigation, as well as for energy security.

The graduates will be prepared to start their careers in nuclear sector, from operators of nuclear power plants at all stages, from the preparatory works to the construction and operations of a nuclear power plant, to suppliers of nuclear technologies, equipment and materials. The graduates will be also sought by nuclear regulatory institutions and research and development sector.
