The SCK•CEN Academy collaborates with Belgian and foreign universities and contributes in this way to academic learning.
BNEN, the Belgian Nuclear higher Education Network, is a master-after-master academic programme in nuclear engineering, organised through a consortium of six Belgian universities and SCK•CEN. It is a joint effort to maintain and further develop a high quality programme in nuclear engineering in Belgium
The condensed programme (60 ECTS in one year, including a master thesis) allows students to acquire all necessary scientific and technical background and skills to develop a career in the field of nuclear applications. A modular approach facilitates participation of foreign students.
The lectures are taught in English, at the premises of SCK•CEN in Mol, Belgium. The laboratory exercises make use of the nuclear facilities of SCK•CEN and are organised by SCK•CEN scientists. Various technical visits are organised to research and industrial nuclear facilities.
