We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The MPhil programme in Nuclear Energy, provided by the department in collaboration with the Cambridge Nuclear Energy Centre and co-sponsored by a Nuclear Energy Industry Club, is a one-year full-time nuclear technology and business master's programme 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 programme is part of the University of Cambridge's Strategic Energy Initiative, responding to the prospect of a nuclear renaissance in the UK and around the world.
