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.


Three tracks available

Nuclear Plants, Nuclear Technologies, Nuclear System Physics.

Subjects common to all tracks

Atomic, Nuclear, Particles Physics, Introduction to Nuclear Engineering, Radioprotection, Fission Reactor Physics, Nuclear Detection and Measurements, Nuclear Plants.

Optional subjects according to the track

Reliability Safety and Risk Analysis, Medical Applications of Radiation Fields, Radiochemistry, Nuclear Design and Technology Experimental Nuclear Reactor Kinetics, Waste Management, Decommissioning, Nuclear Electronics, Solid State Physics, Nuclear Materials, Nanotechnology, Nuclear Techniques for the Analysis of Materials, Statistical physics, Plasma physics, Nuclear Fusion.
