Course content

Studying this postgraduate course, will enable students to evaluate the complex environmental, social and economic impacts of Nuclear Security projects, and to critically assess and respond to policy and regulation frameworks. You will develop a knowledge and awareness of the planning and regulations related to Nuclear Security projects.

The nuclear industry will continue to provide a significant proportion of the UK's energy needs over the next ten years and this percentage will increase as new nuclear power stations come on stream at the end of this decade and beyond. UCLan has developed strong relationships with nuclear employers which include Sellafield Ltd, National Nuclear Laboratory, BAE Systems at Barrow and Westinghouse Ltd.

As a result, the Postgraduate Certificate in Nuclear Security has been uniquely designed and is delivered from a UCLan campus, offering employees already working within the sector and assisting employer led provisions, a flexible programme to fit in around their work patterns. Access to those people from the general engineering sector is also being encouraged.
