The MPhil in Nuclear Energy, provided by the Department in collaboration with the Cambridge Nuclear Energy Centre, is a one year full-time nuclear technology and business masters for engineers, mathematicians and scientists who wish to make a difference to the problems of climate change and energy security by developing nuclear power generation. The combination of nuclear technology with nuclear policy and business makes the course highly relevant to the challenges of 21st century energy needs, whether in the UK or in countries across the globe.

The MPhil is part of the University of Cambridge's Strategic Energy Initiative in response to the prospect of a nuclear renaissance in the UK and around the world. The aim is to provide a masters-level degree course in Nuclear Energy which will combined nuclear science and technology topics with business, management and policy teaching. Students will be equipped with the skills and information essential to responsible leadership of the international global nuclear industry.

The course recognises that, though the prospects for nuclear energy are now better than they have been for twenty years, the nuclear sector is situated within in a wider market for energy technologies, and has no special right to be developed. The political, economic and social contexts for nuclear power are as important as the technical merits of the designs of reactors and systems. The course therefore has a multi-disciplinary emphasis, aiming to be true to the reality of policy-making and business decision-making.

This course is for students who have a good degree in Engineering or related science subject and who wish to gain the knowledge and skills to build a career in the nuclear and energy sectors. Secondary career paths might include nuclear proliferation prevention, radiological protection, nuclear governance, nuclear medicine and health physics. While the prime focus of the course is to equip students for roles in industry, there is a path towards research through preparation for a PhD programme. The modular open architecture of the course allows students to tailor the degree to suit their background, needs and preferences.

See the website http://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/courses/directory/egegmpmne

This Masters programme is aimed at engineering graduates aspiring to senior level positions in large manufacturing or service provider organisations, or as part of an engineering supply chain. Graduates from related disciplines can embrace engineering continuous improvement, operations management and enterprise requirement planning (ERP) applications in engineering.

About the programme

In many engineering organisations ERP is the main software system application that controls and assists in the management of all functional departments and the whole facility, often globally. This unique programme has a UK and global appeal for career development and future plans are currently being developed to offer SAP ERP certification. It satisfies both the operations management and continuous improvement (CI) elements within engineering, and the application of ERP systems such as SAP and/or Oracle. Many companies use ERP within the supply chain including Terex, Tata Steels, RollsRoyce, Honeywell, Audi, and BMW.

This programme will develop the skills you need to interface with functional users, other than engineers, giving you an informed view for further configuration or customisation.

Your learning

Core topics include ERP, continuous improvement and operations management with options of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Project Management and modules with further planning and management of resources.

Our lecturers are seasoned industry experts, and we complement their knowledge with industry visits to determine the effectiveness of various applications.

MSc students undertake a dissertation, selecting a specialism to achieve a greater understanding of the implementation and advanced use of software applications, management initiatives and planning within an engineering setting. There may be scope to integrate this dissertation with industry, where an engineering supervisor will be allocated to assist your MSc journey and to advise and introduce you to industry links.

Our Careers Adviser says

Graduates are equipped for the next step in their career in manufacturing and service operations. Most business organisations that implement ERP solutions use fully-trained, qualified implementation partners and consultants throughout their lifecycle.

There is demand for graduates who have had some initial education and training and hands-on experience in ERP solutions such as SAP. Businesses, ERP solution providers, and consulting organisations require top calibre trained ERP consultants and users. UWS graduates who are trained in ERP and supporting materials will possess a unique skill-set that will be a differentiator when competing in the employment market.
