Nuclear safety focuses on preventing accidents, and on how a plant is operated safely if accidents happen. Research on next generation reactors focuses on, for example, small modular reactors.

In this Nuclear Engineering programme at LUT University, you will learn about energy economics, environmental impacts, savings and emissions, nuclear energy and safety, and the development of plant processes.


To ensure the safe and reliable operation of existing plants and the construction of new plants in the future, there is a constant need for new professionals in nuclear engineering.Our graduates have a clear understanding of what is required of safe nuclear power systems and how they are utilised to change the overall energy system towards the cleaner.Graduates from our programme work in every field related to nuclear power: in power production, in research and development, for nuclear industry subcontractors, in regulatory authorities or in companies building nuclear power plants.Graduates have versatile professional capabilities. They may work as project engineers and managers, with components, with safety and regulations, etc.
