2. General presentation of the study programme

Nuclear Engineering was included in the Italian regulations of the Engineering Courses in 1955-56. In 1957, the Politecnico di Milano was the first University in Italy to offer this subject in the framework of its courses. The capabilities of providing a complete and adequate learning in the nuclear field was gained during the subsequent years, together with a strong link to the related research aspects. Nowadays, the Course of Nuclear Engineering is attended by students from all over Italy.

 

The strategic validity of nuclear technologies, within their social, environmental and scientific aspects, is higher than fifty years ago. Nuclear Engineering, which was formerly finalized to its energy applications only, was addressed to other applications. It played a fundamental role in creating new disciplines responding to extremely complex problems. It should be remembered that Nuclear Engineering is characterized by a variety of correlated fields and by safety aspects which require a deep and integrated knowledge of each peculiar problem. Therefore the gained culture is effective in a wide variety of high-technology fields.

 

The Course aims at training engineers capable of facing the complex aspects which characterize the nuclear subjects. In this Course high emphasis is given to energetic applications, e.g. those referring to fission and fusion plants, the nuclear fuel, materials and safety. Also non-energetic applications are accounted for, i.e., i) medical and industrial applications of radiation; ii) radiation detection and measurements; iii) nuclear electronics for radiation detection; iv) radiochemistry; v) radiation protection and vi) material physics, plasma physics and nanotechnologies with a strong link to their impact in the nuclear field. 


3. Learning objectives

The Course aims at training engineers capable of facing complex problems in the framework of energetic and non-energetic applications of the nuclear field.

 

The learning programme is structured in order to provide the future engineer with the competences to design, construct and manage complex plants utilizing either radiation fields or the energy generated by nuclear reactions. In particular, these skills are devoted to plants for energy generation, plants for waste reprocessing and disposal, systems exploiting radiation for industrial and medical applications, laboratories for characterizing and developing advanced materials.

 

Besides giving a deeper knowledge about basics of mathematics and physics, the learning programme is characterized by a strong core constituted by courses on nuclear reactor physics, nuclear plants, radiation detection and measurements and the associated instrumentation, safety of high-risk systems and nuclear materials. Some courses, on the student’s choice, allow to gain a deeper knowledge about the energetic and the non-energetic fields.


4. Organization of the study programme and further studies

4.1 Structure of the study programme and Qualifications

4.2 Further Studies

The qualification grants access to "Dottorato di Ricerca" (Research Doctorate), "Corso di Specializzazione di secondo livello" (2nd level Specialization Course) and "Master Universitario di secondo livello" (2nd level University Master)


The MSc degree in Nuclear Engineering satisfies the requirements for applying (prior an admission examination) to a PhD Course. In particular, the knowledge and the capabilities devoted to research in the nuclear field may be deepened in the framework of the PhD Course in Energy and Nuclear Science and Technology of the Politecnico di Milano. More details are given in: www.sten.polimi.it.


5. Professional opportunities and work market

5.1 Professional status of the degree

The Master degree (MSc) graduate in Nuclear Engineering can operate in high-technology research centres and industry. The MSc graduate possesses the capability of designing and managing sophisticated systems and plants and of conducting complex experiments, by mastering problems requiring multi-disciplinarity. His/her specific competencies apply to nuclear power plants and to other applications of radiation.


The gained title is “laurea magistrale” (MSc degree), belonging to the class of Industrial Engineering. The MSc graduate can act as a professional after having passed the “Qualifying Examination for Professional Engineers” (www.esamidistato.it) and having joined Section A of the List of the Engineer Order of the province of residence (www.ordineingegneri.milano.it).

5.2 Careers options and profiles

Owing to the multidisciplinary training and their capability of facing complex problems, the MSc graduates in Nuclear Engineering can easily apply to posts offered not only within the nuclear sector (industries operating in electro-nuclear power generation, nuclear plant dismantling, nuclear waste processing and disposal, design and construction of radiation sources for industrial and medical application, institutes and centres for nuclear fusion and high-energy physics), but in other sectors operating in the field of high-technology, engineering companies, companies for industrial, medical and engineering advice, hospitals, companies for risk analysis and the environmental impact of high-risk plants, engineering companies, regulation agencies, officers of the European Community, research centres and universities.

 

It should be stressed that the employment opportunities in foreign companies and industries are likely to increase, as it is demonstrated by a fairly large number of graduates from this Course presently working in different Countries belonging to the industrialized world.

6. Enrolment

6.1 Access requirements

First cycle degree (level 6 EQF) or comparable qualification


A BSc (preferably in Engineering or Physics) is required to access to the MSc in Nuclear Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano.

 

The Faculty of the Course of Nuclear Engineering (Consiglio di Corso di Studio, CCS) designates a commission (composed by professors from the Course) for the access to the MSc. The duration of the commission is the same of that of the Faculty Chairman. The Commission task is to evaluate the CV of the applicants to the MSC in Nuclear Engineering of the Politecnico di Milano, with the goal of proposing to the CCS the access through the following options:

  1. BSc graduates from Energy Engineering, Physics Engineering, Mathematical Engineering, Materials and Nanotechnology Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Electric Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano have direct access if they attended specific courses in the framework of their BSc Courses. More details are given in: www.ingnucleare.polimi.it;
  2. BSc graduates fulfilling the conditions described in item 1 who matriculated since the academic year 2003/2004 and who acquired at least 90 credits on 30 September of the second year after matriculation are exempted from the access interview under the following conditions: i) they must have gained at least 90 credits with an averaged grade equal to 24/30; ii) they must have gained the BsC degree in four academics years from matriculation;
  3. BSc graduates from other Universities can be levelled to those from the Politecnico di Milano under the CCS approval;
  4. all the students not fulfilling the conditions listed above must give an access interview whose modalities are specified by the CCS.

 

The access commission is designated by the CCS and it is constituted by three professors belonging to the CCS, lecturing within the Course of Nuclear Engineering.

 

High motivation is required for beginning these studies which are hard, but very challenging for their high grade of multidisciplinarity.

6.2 Requested knowledge

Skills in basics and characterizing disciplines of Industrial Engineering are required for the accessing the MSc Course of Nuclear Engineering. Therefore, the access is conditioned by the verification of these requirements and the personal training.

 

Detailed information concerning the admission test are available on the Guidance site (www.orientamento.polimi.it).

7. Contents of the study Program

7.1 Programme requirements

As specified by didactic regulations, 120 credits are required to obtain the degree.


The degree is obtained upon completion of 120 credits. The activities required to earn these credits are presented in detail in the curricula regulations; they include the preparation of a degree thesis (15 credits). 

7.2 Mode of study

Full time attendance is required. Both classroom and laboratory (experimental and numerical) activities are foreseen.


The courses are given in the standard teaching mode (lectures, numerical exercises, computational laboratories, experimental laboratories). Visits at plants or research laboratories are also foreseen. Attendance of lectures is not compulsory and is not recorded, but is strongly advised. Lectures are a major help in learning, and in acquiring the essential critical skills. 

7.3 Detailed learning objectives

The main goals of the first year of the MSc degree in Nuclear Engineering are:

  • to build a uniform basis of knowledge, by completing the basic topics learnt in the BSc degree by courses which are either compulsory or chosen according to the previous BSc course (20 ECTS). The Courses for acquiring these credits will be assigned by the MSc Access Commission under the advice of the Curricula Commission;
  • to establish a sound knowledge of the basic disciplines of Nuclear Engineering (40 credits).

During the MSc second year the preparation in the subjects characterizing Nuclear Engineering will be completed. To this aim, 30 credits must be acquired within a set of restricted choices, well focused on the specific topics of Nuclear Engineering, while a much broader choice is offered within 15 credits. This broader choice is however organized in three groups of courses, labeled IN, TN and FSN, because they implement respectively the three specializations in nuclear power plants (‘Impianti Nucleari/Nuclear Plants, IN), in the non-energetic nuclear technologies (‘Tecnologie Nucleari/Nuclear Technologies’, TN), and in more basic physical topics (‘Fisico per i Sistemi Nucleari/Physics for Nuclear Systems, FSN).). Three standard curricula are thus available to each student, irrespective of his/her previous expertise. In the same year the student will choose his thesis tutor and topic, then working on the thesis preparation (15 credits).

The student can thus enjoy a significant flexibility in achieving a sound knowledge of the disciplines of Nuclear Engineering. The standard curricula do not limit the freedom of choice of the students, but they rather guide the choice along consistent paths and objectives. Furthermore, the student can build his own autonomous curriculum (Piano di Studio Autonomo, PSA) to propose a specific focus, not already present in the standard curricula. Each autonomous curriculum will need approval by the faculty (a commission named by the Council of the Course in Nuclear Engineering, Consiglio di Corso di Studio, CCS) which will assess the goals and the consistency of the autonomous curriculum, and the compliance to basic requisites.

All the three standard curricula of the second year are available to each student, irrespective of the standard curriculum followed in the first year.

The general structure of the curricula is listed below: the courses are presented for each year, following the standard curricula. As far as the second year is concerned, both the courses supplied in the academic year 2014/15 (MSc Course in Italian) and the ones planned for the academic year 2015/16 (MSc Course in English) are listed in the following.


1st YEAR

 

20 credits (20 ECTS)  will be assigned from Table T, by the MSc Access Commission under the advice of the Curricula Commission and according to the previous BSc student’s curriculum. Further details are available on: http://www.ingnucleare.polimi.it/

ASPRI programme

The Course of Nuclear Engineering includes the ASPRI programme. This programme was offered for the first time by the Schoolof industrial Engineeringof the Politecnico di Milano during the academic year 2008-09. The programme is intended for students with high skill for research and aims at improving the students’ skill in order train engineers to be devoted to science and technological research. The ASPRI programme falls within the strategy for high level training of the Politecnico di Milano and supports the students’ specialization. The programme is structured through the traditional Course of Nuclear Engineering, but gives the opportunity of deepening some aspects of the student’s training from the point of view of both methodology and subjects. For this purpose the programme foresees additional training activities in several disciplines and within the Thesis (20 additional credits including the ones listed in the ASPRI table). The access requirements and the modalities of attendance are described on: www.ingnucleare.polimi.it.

Additional MSc Degree in Nuclear Engineering (for MSc graduates in Mathematical Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano.

An additional MSc Degree in Nuclear Engineering can be awarded by MSc graduates in Mathematical Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano, who attended the track “Mathematical-Physical Models for Nuclear Applications”. For this purpose, these graduates should enrol at the Course of Nuclear Engineering and attend only an additional year, as specified in: http://www.ingnucleare.polimi.it/. The students enrolled in this program can discuss the MSc Thesis of the MSc degree in Mathematical Engineering during their final degree examination (corresponding to 15 ECTS).


Students’ exchange programme between Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Torino.

In the framework of the agreement for students’ exchange between Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Torino and in order to promote internationalization, a selected number of foreign students can apply to the second year attendance of the MSc in Nuclear Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino. These students should enroll at the MSc Course in Nuclear Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano, by attending a specific track, as it is specified in: http://www.ingnucleare.polimi.it/.

7.4 Foreign language

TheSchoolof School of Industrial and Information Engineering adopted, without any modification, the regulations approved by the Academic Senate for the whole Politecnico, concerning the knowledge of a foreign language, including the vocabulary of specific disciplines.

In order to be enrolled to the MSc programme, the student must own a certification stating a knowledge of the English language at the level required by the Politecnico di Milano. Since the knowledge of a foreign language is a pre-requisite for admission, no further tests will be performed during the MSc programme.

7.5 Degree examination

The degree examination consists of the presentation and the discussion of the work autonomously performed by the student in the preparation of the thesis. The final examination offers the student a further opportunity to deepen an verify the skills concerning the analysis, the elaboration and the presentation of the performed work. It consists of a discussion, face to the graduation commission, of the results achieved in the thesis activities.

 

The straightforward choice of a thesis tutor is for a teacher of the Nuclear Engineering curriculum, but the regulations of the Final Examination also allow each student to choose any Politecnico teacher, provided the Council of the Course in Nuclear Engineering is fully informed of the choice.
