Nuclear technology plays a crucial role in a wide variety of contexts and sectors including: - power production - nuclear fuel production - radioelement production - engineering - accelerator design and fabrication - waste management - safety management - nuclear medicine - research. The Belgian Nuclear Higher Education Network (BNEN) combines the expertise in nuclear education and research of six major Belgian universities (KU Leuven, Ghent University, VUB, UCL, ULG and ULB) with the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre This is an advanced Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.



International Student Requirements:

Applicants must hold the equivalent of a Belgian university engineering degree (Master of Science in Engineering with a minimum 5 year full-time study programme). Other engineers (e.g. graduates from polytechnics, Fachhochschule, industrieel ingenieurs, ingénieurs industriels) or non-engineering university graduates (e.g. chemistry and physics) can be admitted upon evaluation of their application and after having passed an entrance exam. The subject of this entrance exam covers the material of one-semester make-up courses. A selection committee decides on the admission of the candidate. The language of instruction is English. Students must prove their proficiency in English, e.g. by presenting a score on a language test (e.g. TOEFL/IELTS) indicating a C-1 level on the Common European Framework of the Council of Europe.
