This new MSc has been designed to exploit existing and new appointments in nuclear science and engineering which will utilise the unique facilities for nuclear research provided by access to the NNL Central Laboratories at Sellafield, the Dalton Cumbrian Facility and the National Tsing Hua University research reactor in Taiwan.
The MSc in Nuclear Power Engineering will:
- provide you with a systematic understanding of nuclear power engineering - provide a comprehensive and broad overview of contemporary issues and applications associated with nuclear power engineering - prepare you to become a professional in the global nuclear industry - develop your ability to work independently and in teams to research, design, implement and execute creative solutions to engineering problems.
Students completing the programme will gain the following key skills:
- the ability to deal systematically and creatively with complex issues associated with the nuclear power engineering and to communicate conclusions to both specialists and non-specialists; - the ability to demonstrate initiative and originality in addressing and solving problems associated with nuclear power engineering and to act autonomously in planning and implementing solutions in a professional manner; - the ability to continue to advance their knowledge, skills and understanding in nuclear science and engineering in order to become self-directed life-long learners; and - the ability to make use of the transferable skills required in employment including the exercise of initiative, decision-making in complex situations, and participation in professional, legal and ethical frameworks.
The programme will consist of eight 15-credit modules taught intensively over one or two weeks each with pre-module reading and post-module assignments. Some modules will be assessed via the assignment and some using examinations. Students will undertake a 30-credit group design or safety case project in competitive groups and a 30-credit individual project that could be experimental, computational or forensic in nature.
Normally a UK 2.1 or equivalent but students graduating from a UK university with a 2.2 degree can be considered on a case by case basis. This should be in Engineering or Science with appropriate knowledge of core engineering science topics at bachelor degree level.
