The elective project has the purpose to train the students in the solution of specific engineering problems related to nuclear technology. This makes use of the technical and social skills acquired during the master’s program. Tutors propose the subject of the project, elaborate the project plan, and define the roadmap together with their students, as well as monitor the overall execution.

The elective project is designed to train the students in the solution of specific engineering problems.

This makes use of the technical and social skills acquired during the master’s programme. The course deals with the important challenges for materials structural and fuel for current and advanced nuclear power plants.

Experimental techniques and tools used for working with active materials are discussed in detail. Students will be well acquainted with analytical and modeling methodologies for damage assessment and residual life determination and with the behavior of high burnup fuel.


The behaviour of materials in nuclear reactors determines the reliability and safety of nuclear power plants NPPs. Life extension and the understanding of fuel behavior under high burn-up conditions is of central importance for current-day NPPs.

The course will highlight the above needs from different points of view. Experimental methods for the control and analysis of nuclear components and materials in operating NPPs will be presented. Advanced analytical and modeling tools will be introduced for characterization and understanding of irradiation damage, creep, environment effects, etc.

Insights acquired from recent experimental programs into high burnup fuel behavior under hypothetical accident conditions RIA, LOCA will be presented. Materials for advanced future nuclear plants will be discussed. To acquire hands-on experience with the running of large computer codes in relation to the static analysis of nuclear reactor cores and the multi-physics simulation of nuclear power plant NPP dynamic behaviour.
