This postgraduate course due to start September 2020 will develop an awareness of the planning and regulations related to Nuclear Safety, Security and Safeguards 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. As a result, the MSc Nuclear Safety, Security and Safeguards course has been developed directly in line with recent Government plans for higher education institutions to work closely with niche industries; developing customised programmes and building relationships with employers. The course is 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.
