Description M1
========== SNEAM - NEPIA ==========
* Acquire basic knowledge necessary for understanding nuclear energy production (power reactors) and industrial applications, e.g. accelerators, cyclotrons...
* Develop competences in reactor operation, maintenance and safety issues including radioprotection.
* Develop competences in particles beams production and qualification.
* Develop competences in nuclear radiations applications: instrumentation, non destructive control, security...
* Develop an awareness of societal considerations related to nuclear energy production.
* Take into account societal issues related to nuclear energy production.
========== SNEAM - ANWM ==========
The master forms engineers exposed to a highly complex scientific environment where technical expertise is omnipresent in the field of nuclear waste management. The program provides:
* The scientific knowledge necessary for nuclear waste management and the capability to understand how to assess long-term safety and environment impacts.
* The competencies to master the operational techniques and strategies for the management of nuclear waste.
* The appropriate solutions according to the type of waste through project work in industry.
* The possibility to build contacts with a large number of international key players in the field.
* The competencies to master dismantlement and decommissioning of nuclear installations.
* Societal considerations in the management of nuclear waste with regard to the public acceptance.
========== SNEAM - NUTMA ==========
This speciality develops fundamental scientific, technical and industrial knowledge of the different nuclear technologies used in the medical world. It has a particular focus on the safety and radioprotection, to be considered in the management of a large project in this field.
Objectives
* Acquire the basic scientific knowledge relative to nuclear technologies, necessary for understanding their utility and danger in medical applications.
* Develop competences in beams production and qualification.
* Master the operational techniques and strategies for the management of a project in nuclear medicine. Implement appropriate solutions through projects in/with industry.
* Develop competences in radioprotection and nuclear waste management in the medical environment.
* Build contacts with a large number of international key players in the field.
* Develop an awareness of societal considerations related to nuclear medicine.
