This course aims to equip the next generation of nuclear engineers with the skills and understanding to satisfy the demands of the nuclear industry.
This programme is aimed at a new generation of engineers, with the intention of ensuring they are equipped with specific training to work together and generate creative solutions based upon solid technical understanding to support the global nuclear industry.
Topics covered include all major aspects of the nuclear industry from the design and build of nuclear power stations, their operations, through to decommissioning and final disposal.
We enable our students to be horizon scanners and discuss the next generation of fission and fusion concepts, as well as the role of nuclear power in the wider global energy landscape.
The core and supplementary modules are taught by research leaders from within the Centre for Nuclear Engineering (CNE) and a hand-picked selection of industrial experts. Our experts come from the Departments of Materials, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Earth Science Engineering, alongside unique expertise from our Reactor Centre staff at the Silwood Park campus, who manage the CONSORT test reactor.
As well as taught modules, you will complete a hands-on research project for three months over the summer.
