Bachelor in Nuclear Engineering


The international Bachelor in Nuclear Engineering is a one year program designed for two types of students: those who have finished a three year Bachelor’s degree and want to acquire a specialization in nuclear engineering or those pursuing a four year degree and want to do their last year in a highly specialized environment dedicated to nuclear engineering. In either case, upon completion of the program, students will be granted a diploma from the Grenoble INP - Phelma Engineering school.  The program is based on series of interdisciplinary and nuclear specific courses divided in three modules -nuclear sciences (interaction of radiation with matter, nuclear reactors, nuclear instrumentation etc.) engineering sciences (mathematics, thermodynamics, heat transfer etc.) and languages/sports and it prepares students to be able to perform competently in occupational areas such as reactor operations, health physics, quality assurance, instrumentation  and control technology, as well as in related areas in the nuclear technology field.
With the Bachelor degree, it is possible to undertake a master degree everywhere in the world. At Grenoble INP-Phelma, registration to MaNuEn (Materials science for Nuclear Energy) master is possible.


Industrial sectors

Obtaining a diploma in Bachelor of Nuclear Engineering may be a first step towards  a promising future career. The students will qualify (often after  completing a Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering  and, if need be, after obtaining a PhD degree) for an interesting, multidisciplinary profession with excellent job opportunities in industry, research and national authorities. Tasks that are on the agenda - like the safe and reliable operation of existing and new reactors, the development of novel reactor types, the sustainable supply of nuclear fuel, the closure of the fuel cycle, the disposal of radioactive waste without harm to the environment, and many others - represent scientific and technical challenges for motivated young engineers and researchers.


There are many opportunities to perform research internships thanks to a very high density of academic laboratories in the Grenoble area, such as LPSC, SIMAP, LEPMI and others. Professors involved in the bachelor program are themselves active researchers and help students to find stimulating research projects.  As an example, the group of nuclear structure at the LPSC laboratory is working on experimental and theoretical nuclear structure problems, the group of nuclear reactors of the same laboratory has an expertise in molten salt reactors, nuclear data, thorium, and accelerator driven systems. The SIMAP laboratory is involved in multiscale modelling of irradiation defects in materials and studies behavior of materials for fission reactors and ITER. The LEPMI laboratory focuses on problems related  to fluid dynamics, corrosion...
