The second year of the Master MaNuEn is designed to cover materials issues in a nuclear environment from fuels to structural materials of primary circuit components.
The content of the courses has been designed by Grenoble - INP and INSTN with the support of CEA and EDF, both partners of the master.
The first semester of the master starts mid september and ends in january. All candidates must complete the following 4 common core courses (268h, 25 ECTS). These courses develop the fundamentals scientific aspect and specific issues of materials used in nuclear reactor : from material selection and design to irradiation damage and materials ageing. Then, students build further skills by chosen between two optional courses (~90h, 5 ECTS):
Option "Components" organised by EDF deals with operationnal feedback in PWR and structural materials for nuclear components,
Option "Fuels" organised by the CEA focuses on nuclear fuels (PWR, RNR and other reactor types).
Semester 2 : internship
Privileged contacts with engineers from EDF and CEA working departments dedicated to R&D studies on materials for nuclear applications could help students to define their professional project and broaden internship opportunities.
