Physics and engineering of nuclear reactors at the "Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Physique de Grenoble" of the "Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble"

Abstract

If the use of fossil fuels is to be limited to curtail greenhouse gas emissions, fission nuclear energy is, along with new renewable energies, one of the primary energy sources able to respond significantly to the increasing worldwide demand. In this context, it is necessary to design and evaluate new generations of nuclear reactors as defined by the Gen IV International Forum. The Energy and Nuclear Engineering (GEN) curriculum of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Physique de Grenoble (ENSPG), one of the nine engineering schools of the Grenoble Institute of Technology (INPG), includes a balanced blend of basic courses in energy, nuclear and thermal hydraulic engineering, together with the corresponding engineering sciences to cover the technological aspects. The objective is to train engineers who shall master not only nuclear engineering for the production of electricity but, more broadly, energy and nuclear technologies and their various application fields.
