Career prospects

To ensure the safe and reliable long-term operation of existing plants and to facilitate the construction of new plants in the future, there is a constant need for new professionals in nuclear engineering.

Our graduates have a clear understanding of what is required of safe nuclear power systems and how nuclear power is utilised to change the overall energy system towards cleaner processes.

Graduates from our programme work in every field related to nuclear power: in power production, in research and development, for nuclear industry subcontractors, for regulatory authorities, for companies building nuclear power plants, and for companies providing fuel and waste management and other services to nuclear operators.

Graduates have versatile professional capabilities. They may work as project engineers, designers, analysts, developers, and managers, eventually even achieving top management positions. LUT graduates typically deal with power plant systems or components, company work processes, safety and regulations, etc.
