Mission and goals

The aim of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) programme in Nuclear Engineering is to prepare engineers with skills necessary to design, build and operate power generation plants, radioactive waste treatment plants, systems using radiation for industrial, medical and research applications, etc. The educational programme, therefore, gives emphasis both to topics referring to energy applications, (i.e. fission and fusion plants, nuclear fuel, materials and safety) and to those related to non-energy applications, as in medical and industrial use of radiation, physics of matter, plasma physics and nanotechnologies with strong connections with the Nuclear Engineering field.

Career opportunities

The graduates in Nuclear Engineering, thanks to the Laurea Magistrale multidisciplinary training, can easily be employed in the nuclear sector (e.g. industries operating in nuclear power plants design, construction and operation, in nuclear decommissioning and nuclear waste processing and disposal, in design and construction of radiation sources, in centers for nuclear fusion and high-energy physics), as well as in other areas such as the energy industry, the medical sector, the health, safety and environment sector (e.g. engineering companies, hospitals, consultancy and risk analysis firms) and also research centers and universities.
