The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
IELTS: 6.5 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each band)
At least 1 reference(s) should be provided.
A motivation letter must be added to your application.
In the first two years you’ll receive a thorough grounding in the science of materials. You’ll learn how to tailor the structure, composition and processing of materials to meet design requirements.
From the third year onwards you’ll specialise in nuclear engineering and technology, and complete a five-month paid work placement in the nuclear sector.
The course involves contact with industry in every year. This could mean visits to manufacturing plants, projects with global companies such as Rolls-Royce and summer placements.
All our students also take the Global Engineering Challenge. Working with students from other engineering courses, you’ll have to find creative solutions to problems. The project looks at challenges faced by communities throughout the world. It’s designed to develop you as a professional engineer and get you thinking about sustainable solutions.
Our new Industrial Training Programme for this course enables you to work closely with employers and gain valuable experience working in a professional environment.
