The Department of Nuclear Reactors provides courses in the branch of nuclear engineering. These courses are focused on theoretical and experimental reactor physics, neutron applications, nuclear reactor operation and engineering.

Students have the opportunity to take part in running projects in the form of students´ year projects in which they learn how to do systematic scientific work and how to solve given tasks. Students can gain practical knowledge by working in research institutions or nuclear power companies. Research reactor VR-1 and many different laboratories are available to enhance students’ knowledge. Students are encouraged to use the tools of information technology and up-to-date calculation computing codes in their work (neutron characteristics calculations or thermodynamic properties of systems).

The Department staff currently comprises of 25 members, two thirds of whom were academics and scientists and the rest consisted of specialists, technicians and administrative workers, the latter responsible mainly for reactor operation.
