What Will You Study

Lancaster’s Nuclear Engineering MEng degree programme is accredited by both the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Our four-year scheme which is guided by our excellence in research to nuclear instrumentation, nuclear decommissioning, and chemical processes along with our location relative to Sellafield Ltd, Springfields Fuels Ltd and many supporting specialist companies, puts us an international leader in nuclear engineering systems.

Nuclear applications cover a broad range of sectors from healthcare and cancer treatment through to power generation, national security and decommissioning activity. The industry is set to expand over the next ten years with estimated international spend of around £930 billion for building new reactors and £250 billion for decommissioning those coming offline, there is potential for generation of 40,000 jobs in the UK nuclear sector alone.
