Your connection to the industry

MSc EMINE has strong partnerships with all the leading players in the European nuclear industry who actively participate in the programme to ensure it remains current and relevant to your needs – and their own.

Where permitted, partners are involved in curriculum design, selection processes, teaching, internships, support for your Master’s thesis, and job opportunities. You will also have the opportunity to engage with our industrial partners during networking events, guest lectures and field visits.

Companies involved in the EMINE programme include Areva, EDF, Endesa and Vattenfall. In addition, the Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives (CEA) contributes expertise from one of the most important research centres in nuclear energy in Europe.

Specific opportunities to engage with our industry partners include:

Master’s School kick-off

All first-year students studying for an InnoEnergy Master’s School programme get together to launch the new academic year together with teachers and industry experts from across the entire energy sector.

Watt’s Up conference

You and your fellow students organise a conference and debate on world energy issues for a large and non-specialist audience. Supported by our scientific and industrial experts, you encourage creativity and spontaneity in the way of presenting facts and answering questions.

Site visits

You get the chance to visit state-of-the-art facilities in the nuclear field. Examples include: CORYS, a French SME that is also a world reference in training and engineering simulators, including for nuclear plants; and the CEA research centre where you gain a first-hand view of technologies being developed in their labs, as well as prototypes for energy harvesting, sensors, sensor networks, smart materials, and contactless antennae and transmission.

In-house training

A two-week training course at key research centres or at major energy companies, including EDF.

PIMS projects

During the MSc EMINE programme, students will undertake a project based on the PIMS teaching method.  The project takes you out of the lecture hall, and puts you in a real-life situation, in which you will assess a current business challenge facing one of our start-up and entrepreneurial partners, and establish the necessary innovation to solve it. During the PIMS project you are given the tools and methods to assess, understand and reduce the market and technical risks around innovation, test hypotheses, and make a contribution to the growth and development of new businesses.


All students have the opportunity to submit their CV for a 6-8 month internship at one of the programme’s industrial partners.


Students are encouraged to undertake their thesis at one of the programme partners. Your thesis work gives you privileged access to the most prestigious industries whose experts act as your mentors.
