Students will acquire knowledge of the fundamentals of physics, mathematics and computer science (IT) disciplines, and, in the advanced courses, of nuclear techniques used in nuclear power engineering and of ionizing radiation protection. While still on the Bachelor Programme, students can head towards careers in nuclear power engineering or in theoretical studies through the choice of appropriate optional courses, which gives them an advantage when entering the Continuation Master Programme. In these courses, they study advanced topics of neutron physics and thermohydraulics focused on the theory, design and operation of nuclear reactors. Moreover, they also gain practical engineering knowledge of the construction and operation of nuclear facilities. Attendance of theoretical courses is supplemented with experimental training in the Department´s laboratories, and hands-on training on the training reactor VR-1.

The Department of Nuclear Reactors is responsible for the following Bachelor Programme course

finishing Bachelor´s Programme course

and Doctoral Programme course


Science and Research

Scientific activities of the Department are focused on a broad spectrum of issues of nuclear power engineering. They cover theoretical and experimental reactor physics, safety of nuclear facilities or computational tools for nuclear reactor analyses. The Department staff is also concerned with advanced nuclear reactors, nuclear fuel cycles, spent nuclear fuel, and design and test control and safety systems of nuclear reactors. Finally, the Department members study thermohydraulics of nuclear reactors and thermomechanics of nuclear fuels.

Further, the department organises utilisation of the VR-1 training reactor. The reactor is used in the education of students from the faculty as well as from another ca 12 faculties in the Czech Republic. Technical visits are organised for high school students. Regularly, reactor physics courses are organised for foreign universities. As, well training courses for NPP staff are being carried out.
