MSc EMINE – European Master’s in Nuclear Energy

Engineering. Environment. Society. Study nuclear energy in context


Nuclear energy plays an essential role in the global low-carbon energy mix. It is vital to the successful energy transition – and is a dynamic sector in which to build a lifelong career in sustainable energy.
The European Master’s in Nuclear Energy (MSc EMINE) deepens your technical knowledge, while broadening your understanding of the wider energy sector and the societal, economic and environmental impacts of nuclear energy. Whether it’s leading the design of new reactor types, managing the safe decommissioning of older plants, developing innovative new policy, or planning effective waste management, this nuclear energy programme equips you to meet the challenges facing the global industry.

With courses given by industry experts, on-site work and practicals, and field visits, the MSc EMINE also gives you unrivalled opportunities to engage directly with major industrial players and research institutes. More than half of your time on this nuclear energy programme is spent with industrial partners that include Areva, EDF and Endesa and the CEA, one of the most important research centres in nuclear energy in Europe.

MSc EMINE is an international programme for an international industry.
