Mobility Support for Master's in Nuclear Engineering (MOSUM)

Scope of project

Nuclear fission energy represents 40% of today's electricity production in Switzerland. Nuclear power thus constitutes one of the principal options for closing the country's growing energy gap in a mid-term perspective and, depending on the availability of new generations of nuclear facilities and technologies, also a potentially crucial resource in the long-term.

The high degree of multi-disciplinary scientific and technological knowledge needed makes it imperative that a high level of education is made available to professionals engaged in the various different aspects of nuclear power generation, as also in its future development. This can only be achieved through the offer of university-level courses in nuclear energy related topics to a wide range of scientists and engineers, together with the corresponding opportunities for post-graduate qualification.
