EMINE master programme is an international education initiative offered by KIC-InnoEnergy under the framework of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). Students in the programme have the opportunity to acquire an in-depth knowledge of the nuclear industry, through unique and specialised courses covering a wide range of subjects. Students choose between UPC (Barcelona) and KTH (Stockholm) for the first year and between Grenoble-INP and Paris-Saclay University (France) for the second year. Grenoble École de Management (GEM) completes the list of academic partners: students take a 3-week summer course on energy management issues after their first year in EMINE. EMINE students also benefit from the involvement of our industrial partners (AREVA, EDF, ENDESA, INSTN-CEA, and Vattenfall) in the Programme. For the academic institutions, EMINE is the opportunity to provide a high level education aligned with the industrial needs. The international collaboration among universities helps improving the quality and the adoption of best practices. EMINE attracts good students to our centres whereas the EIT funding and the industrial involvement allows a number of activities that otherwise would have been difficult to carry out, such as the assistance of external industrial experts or field activities. MSc EMINE helps tomorrow’s nuclear engineers take up the challenges the nuclear energy industry faces in terms of safety, social acceptability and waste management. By offering outstanding technical training and addressing the economic, social and political aspects of nuclear energy, the programme broadens the scope of traditional nuclear education.
