Course content

This course is for students interested in the structural aspects of nuclear power plants and the broader field of nuclear energy.

Objectives:
In this programme, you will study how to design, evaluate, and analyse structural systems, with a special focus on Nuclear Power Plants. You will learn all the principles used for the design of buildings, bridges, special structures and in particular nuclear containment structures.

The emphasis on nuclear structures is a response to the skill shortage reported by employers working in this sector. The UK has recently committed to a long-term nuclear new-build programme that is forecast to generate more than 40,000 jobs, yet no specialised training is available in this area. The programme will therefore provide you with a degree that distinguishes you in the market.

The programme is offered on a one-year full-time or two-year part time basis to allow you maximum flexibility.
