Degree structure and studies
The Master's Programme in Nuclear Engineering is a two-year programme. It leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.), which is 120 ECTS credits.
The programme includes core and specialisation studies.
Core studies (23-24 ECTS credits) include courses on maintenance management, nuclear power plant engineering, introduction to sustainability, foundation of computational fluid dynamics.
Specialisation studies (97 ECTS credits). Specialisation studies include obligatory and elective studies:
Obligatory specialisation studies (57 ECTS credits) include courses on nuclear reactor design, computational nuclear thermal hydraulics, nuclear reactor physics methods, nuclear reactor dynamics, steam turbines.
Elective specialisation studies (40 ECTS credits) include courses on energy systems engineering, steam boilers, turbonachinery, turbulence methods, reliability engineering.
The Master's thesis and seminar, 30 ECTS credits, is a part of specialisation studies. The thesis an advanced research project, which requires approximately six months of full-time work. It is completed during the fourth semester of the degree programme.
Double degree studies for LUT degree students
The programme also offers students a possibility for double degree studies. Students admitted to the double degree programme receive a degree certificate from two universities after they have fulfilled the degree requirements of both universities involved.
Students admitted to complete the Master's degree in this Master's programme at LUT may apply for the double degree programme with the Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnical University.
You can find the most recent information about available courses, teaching schedules and degree structures from the LUT study guide.
