Educational objectives – professional opportunities for graduates


The 2nd cycle degree course in Energetic and Nuclear Engineering aims at training graduates with competences in technological innovation, production development, advanced design, planning and programming, management of complex systems, in the fields of private practice, industrial production, services and public administration.

The course prepares students to become Energy professionals, capable of dealing with modern energy issues for all primary sources and their utilisation. This is particularly important today, when both the European Union and Italy are interested in nuclear energy, as well as the need to grant a sustainable development, given that, for at least 50 years more, the world will use fossil fuels with innovative technologies.


The Course offers two different curricula:

“Energy” Curriculum: it aims at training qualified technicians for the promotion and development of technological innovation. Students will learn how to carry out and manage activities related to design and research. The educational programme is characterized by the advanced study of technical and scientific aspects of industrial engineering in general, and of energy in particular.


"Nuclear" Curriculum: this curriculum provides students with competences and cognitive tools for designing and managing nuclear technologies in the field of nuclear fission energy production plants. Attention is also paid to issues related to the development of studies of nuclear fusion as well as to new applicative fields in industrial and medical technologies. Issues related to reliability, safety and risk analysis are studied in depth, and special attention is paid to the design of new reactors, to the cycle of nuclear fuel, to radio-protection issues and to the deactivation of plants.


The 2nd cycle graduates in “Energy and nuclear engineering” might find a job in

 - big energy companies ;

 - petro-chemical and oil processing sector of the energy industry;

 - research centres for the development of nuclear technologies;

 - all the areas where an intensive use of energy sources is made, in particular for evaluations

of environmental impact and sustainability;

 - supply of full energy services, not only for electrical power, but also for gas, heating and servicing (even financial services);

 - design of thermal plants for environmental wellbeing in various areas.
