BNEN is a 60 ECTS master after master programme open to students with different high level backgrounds in engineering. It takes its participants through highly theoretical subjects like neutron reactor physics, fluid flow and heat transfer modelling, and the applications to reaction design, nuclear safety and plant operation & control. At a more interdisciplinary level, the programme includes important chapters of material science, with a particular interest for the fuel cycle. Radiation protection also belongs to the backbone of the programme. To meet the future nuclear competences needed in the broader nuclear context, the programme also tackles decommissioning and waste & disposal and integrates a module on societal aspects of nuclear applications.
The full programme is hosted in Mol, Belgium. All subjects are taught by academics appointed at one of the 6 partner universities. The practical exercises and laboratory sessions are supervised by researchers of SCK CEN. The final thesis offers an opportunity for internship in industry or in a research laboratory.
