STARS - Education and Training

The STARS team is committed to the Education and Training of young nuclear scientists, engineers as well as professionals. Thereby, STARS is involved in Teaching activities within the national joint EPFL/ETHZ Nuclear Engineering Master Program and offer students, the opportunity to conduct Master and PhD theses as well as Trainee and Practicum projects, noting that Guest Scientists can also visit STARS for trainee and/or further education programs.
