Program Overview

Program Description:
Nuclear technology plays a crucial role in a wide variety of contexts and sectors including: - power production - nuclear fuel production - radioelement production - engineering - accelerator design and fabrication - waste management - safety management - nuclear medicine - research. The Belgian Nuclear Higher Education Network (BNEN) combines the expertise in nuclear education and research of six major Belgian universities (KU Leuven, Ghent University, VUB, UCL, ULG and ULB) with the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre. This is an advanced Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.

The aim of the programme is to deliver experts in the field of nuclear energy generation, the construction of facilities for appropriate use and the follow-up of safety procedures concerning nuclear processes.

The Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering programme is an internationally oriented, interuniversity programme organised by BNEN in close collaboration with nuclear research centres and industry. The aim of the BNEN programme is to provide students with all the skills and scientific and technical background necessary to carry out duties at a high level of responsibility in order to ensure the safe and economical operation of nuclear power plants, the regulation and control of nuclear installations or to design new nuclear systems.
