More information



The most significant strategic challenges of the 21st century are the provision of healthy food, clean drinking water and sustainable energy supply. In order to overcome these challenges, a significant structural and paradigm shift must occur in energy in the coming decades, which includes energy efficiency measures covering the entire supply and consumption chain, increasing the proportion of electricity production with low CO2 intensity – primarily based on renewable energy sources, renewable and spreading alternative heat production and increasing the share of low CO2-emitting modes of transport.
This summer school course introduces students to the basics of safe nuclear energy, such as the types of nuclear power plants and their construction, the main operating processes, and material testing methods that qualify the safe operation of the main units. In addition to expanding their theoretical knowledge, students participating in the course receive practical tasks from individual material tests, visit an operating nuclear power plant and its training base, as well as enlarge their knowledge concerning the integrity of nuclear power plants.

Target group

This course suits students from the field of mechanical engineering and material engineering, especially those with a special nuclear knowledge.

Course aim

After studying this course, you will:

  • develop knowledge and understanding of operation of Nuclear Power Plants (NPP), including each unit;
  • get on overview of production technologies of reactor vessel, focused on casting, plastic deformation processes and heat treatment of reactor steels;
  • be introduced to destructive and non-destructive material testing for reactor vessel qualification
  • earn practical experience in an operating nuclear power plant (Paks I and KGYK)

The classes will be taught by highly experienced academics. Students will receive official Transcripts of Records upon completion of the program. The program includes various interesting and enjoyable social programs and excursions.
