Course Introduction

Course in English

Sustainable Nuclear Engineering – Applications and Management (SNEAM) is an English taught
international master program. It consists of a two years program with the first year (1st and
2nd semesters) dedicated to base teaching and training (physics of ionizing radiation, radioprotection,
physico-chemistry of environment, introduction to nuclear technology…), and the second year
(3rd semester) is dedicated to 3 specializations: radioactive waste management, nuclear reactors
and industrial applications, and medical applications. The 4th semester consists of the master
thesis project in industry or R&D laboratory. The scientific and technical skills acquired are
complemented with economy and management skills.
This MSc offers 3 specializations for the second year:

- ANWM: Advanced Nuclear Waste Management at Mines Nantes.
- NEPIA: Nuclear Energy Production and Industrial Applications
- RIA: Ionizing Radiation and Medical Physics
