Summary

This MSc delivers a solid grounding in the science and engineering principles that underpin the global nuclear industry. Throughout the programme you will benefit from a connection, via the South West Nuclear Hub, to the University of Bristol’s highly regarded industrial research. This environment of collaboration with key industrial partners enriches your learning experience and exposes you to the scientific and engineering challenges facing nuclear energy today.

The programme offers you the opportunity to gain skills and experience highly sought after by the nuclear industry. As you learn about five key themes of nuclear science and engineering from experts in the field you will develop skills in problem-solving, team-building, communication and scientific writing.

During the challenge project element of the programme you will join a multi-disciplinary team in approaching a genuine industry problem. The challenge is set by industry partners, who will act as your industrial supervisors, provide guidance on your work and attend your final presentation. Previous industry partners include Sellafield, EDF Energy and the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy.

This area of scientific study demands state-of-the-art facilities, and the programme gives you access to a suite of multi-million pound cutting-edge analytical equipment supported by dedicated technicians. Facilities include profiling systems, x-ray microscopes, a 200-acre site focused on robotics and device sensor development, and the largest earthquake simulator in the UK.

More information on MSc Nuclear Science and Engineering is available on the South West Nuclear Hub Teaching pages.
