The Master’s degree in Nuclear Engineering (MNE) UPC-ENDESA offers a unique and practical oriented training, with the aim to prepare competent engineers so that they can assume managerial positions within the Nuclear Industry. The program combines science, technology and management in the nuclear energy field, including the elements of the safety culture. MNE is embedded in EMINE, the European Master in Nuclear Energy (KIC InnoEnergy) and is completely taught in English. Its 90 credits (each credit implies 25 hours of student’s work) are divided into one year of subjects (60 credits), and one semester of internship plus final project (30 credits). MNE has a strong industrial implication: lecturers from companies, research institutes and the Spanish Regulatory Authority (cover about one half of the lectures; companies accept students in internships and organize technical visits. The participation of professionals external to the University in the definition and revision of the Program is one of MNE’s assets. A large portion of the contents of the MNE are organized in the form of Problem and Project Based Learning: real industrial problems are brought into the classroom to be solved by students, most of the time assisted by experts from the nuclear industry. MNE is in continuous evolution, seeking for a continuous improvement of the contents and learning methods. Starting the sixth edition, the master is firmly consolidated and the alumni value it positively.
