Seven institutions for higher education have launched a Joint European Master in Nuclear Fusion Science and Engineering Physics (FUSION-EP). The aim of the Masters programme is to provide high-level multinational research-oriented education in fusion-related engineering physics, in close relation to the research activities of the partners.

The partners in the Consortium are the Universiteit Gent (Belgium), Université Henri Poincaré (Nancy, France), Kungliga Tekniska Högskola Stockholm (Sweden), Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain), Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Spain), Universidad Polytécnica de Madrid (Spain), and Universität Stuttgart (Germany). The partners have a long relationship in the framework of the European Fusion Programme.

The combined and harmonized teaching and research of the seven institutions offers a far greater variety of competences in the field of fusion science and engineering physics than could be provided by each of the single institutions, and therefore guarantees a significant added value for the students in terms of specialisation opportunities.

The Masters programme is coordinated by prof. Guido van Oost (University of Gent). All information concerning application procedures, progamme and selection criteria can be found at the website
