The worldwide collaboration on the development of nuclear fusion as a safe, clean and inexhaustible energy source is now culminating in the construction of the large test reactor ITER.
ITER is being built in Europe (in Cadarache, France) and will demonstrate 10-fold power multiplication at the 500 MW level. With ITER the science and the engineering of nuclear fusion get a major boost. ITER will also need a new generation of highly trained engineers and scientists for its operation. Eindhoven University of Technology has selected fusion science and technology as one of its high profile areas, by starting a dedicated research group and establishing a full-blown education programme on fusion at the Master level.
Since 2009, the TU/e offers a dedicated master curriculum 'Science and Technology of Nuclear Fusion', Fusion for short. The TU/e is the only university in the Netherlands that offers this specialization. The curriculum is harmonized with other Universities in Europe that offer education in fusion, through the European Fusion Education Network FUSENET. The TU/e is the coordinator of FUSENET.
