Master of Science in Nuclear Energy - Paris, France
The revival of Nuclear Energy at the international level has led several academic institutions located in Paris and the nuclear industry to combine their efforts and create a unique Master of Science in Nuclear Energy.
The Master of Science in Nuclear Energy responds to the demand for strong industrial growth by training industrial professionals and highly specialized researchers and faculty members in the discipline. The projection on the job market is of around 1,000 positions per year in the next ten years.
For academic year 2009-2010, 85 students are enrolled in the program, 40 of them being international. The objective is to train each year 200 students.
