The program prepares students on Obninsk campus of INPhE. 

Description:

The goal of the graduate program “Nuclear Power Plants” is providing a balanced education in the field of nuclear power plant (NPP) design and operation. The curriculum covers a variety courses including computer technologies for science and education, economics of research and development, theoretical and experimental studies in thermal physics, innovations in nuclear power generation, NPP equipment diagnostics, supervisory control and data acquisition systems of NPP (SCADA NPP), basic safety principles for nuclear power plants. A unique advantage of the program is a balanced integration of the fundamental technical education with training modules.  The practical field experience is an essential part of the educational program. The curriculum includes 2 weeks of practical training after the first year of study and 16 weeks during the second year. Places of practical training are nuclear power plants, research and resource centers. To advance and masterize the knowledge and skills, students are involved in up-to-date research activities being realized under the supervision of highly qualified university staff as well as experienced professionals from the Obninsk-based research institutions and enterprises

Career opportunities:

The balanced curriculum and high standard of teaching enable the university students who complete this degree program to pursue positions in the main NPP subdivisions and at nuclear research centers. The competences covers the fields of nuclear installation design and operation.

This educational program enables a university graduate to work in many professional areas related to nuclear technologies, design and operation of nuclear power installations intended for different research and industrial applications, NPPs, thermal physics installations.
