About Atomic Engineering
Masters degrees in Atomic Engineering focus on processes and techniques for manipulating nuclear energy and related areas of particle physics for power generation, quantum computing and other applications.
These programmes generally award a taught MSc or a more specialised MSc (Eng). Research qualifications such as the MRes and MPhil are also available.
Existing at the intersection of high-tech engineering and cutting-edge physics, Atomic Engineering has much to offer postgraduates looking to push the boundaries of their subject area.
The revolutionary applications of atomic processes are wide-ranging, with the potential to massively increase computing power, improve medical technology or harness new energy sources. A Masters will allow you to learn about these processes and perhaps be involved in the discovery of others.
Career opportunities for postgraduate atomic engineers include the obvious (roles in academic research, or industrial fields) as well as the surprising (work in new consumer technologies, science policy or education).
Needless to say, Atomic Engineering is also a rapidly developing research area, with opportunities for PhD research.
