It is established at the Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Rome "Tor Vergata" in agreement with ENEA, the 2nd Level Master Course in FUSION ENERGY - science and engineering. The Master fits in activities aimed at training activities included in the key elements of the roadmap of the European fusion program 'Horizon 2020': training of young scientists and engineers of the merger for the next machines ITER / DEMO. The course aims to train experts in the following areas of expertise:
- Operation of machines and experiments for fusion ( magnetic confinement and inertial)
- Fusion technologies
- Engineering machinery and the fusion reactor
In order to participate in the Master Course and obtain the official title (which has legal value according to the Italian law), candidates must have a 300-ECTS point Master degree or equivalent in Chemistry, Physics, Engineering and Materials Science. They can also be admitted foreign students with qualifications recognized as equivalent by the Faculty Council, on a proposal of the Council of professors of the Master.
May be recognized by the Council of the professors of the Master documented competence and training, further training and internship followed after obtaining the degree which gives access to the Master's degree and certification which there (including teaching activities as part of courses study), provided they are consistent with the characteristics of the Master itself. These activities are assigned useful credits for the completion of the Master, with a corresponding reduction in the training load due, up to a maximum of 20 credits. The duration of the course is one academic year but can be extended to two academic years depending on the individual study plan.
The training allows you to mature 60 university credits equal to 1500 hours, including 440 hours of lectures.
The Master is divided into three phases:
Phase I: Basic Training Course of 440 hours dedicated to the formation of a basic system Knowledge shared by the professionals mentioned. The basic training course has a duration of 5 months and ends with exams.
Phase II: internships in laboratories ( research and / or industry) Italian and / or foreign minimum duration of 4 months.
Phase III: preparation of a master thesis and final examination.
