Applicants should have a minimum lower second class degree or equivalent overseas qualification in Civil, Mechanical or Nuclear Engineering.
Months of entry
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 little specialised training is available in this area. The proposed 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-years part time basis to allow you maximum flexibility and is supported by the Royal Academy of Engineering
