About the course

The University of Birmingham's Physics and Technology of Nuclear Reactors Masters programme is a unique opportunity for students to gain comprehensive training in nuclear physics, reactor engineering and the latest research into future energy sources.

The environmental impact from the use of fossil fuels and the uncertainties in their sources of supply has led to many alternative energy sources being investigated. But of these, only nuclear fission power is at present sufficiently developed to provide an economically viable alternative to fossil fuels.
