Overview

This special course has been designed to provide the highly skilled chemical engineers that are specifically needed by the nuclear industry.

You’ll specialise in nuclear engineering, through taught modules, a design project and an individual research project focusing on nuclear technology. Our nuclear laboratory module gives you hands-on experience of working safely with radioactive sources, combined with an understanding of regulatory and safety principles.

The first two years of all our courses are the same so you have the flexibility to switch courses, up to the end of the second year.
