The MSc in Nuclear Science and Engineering at University of Bristol combines the strengths of our science and engineering faculties with an established programme of nationally recognised industrial research through the Bristol-Oxford Nuclear Research Centre. The MSc offers a unique multidisciplinary experience and is a key part of the South West Nuclear Hub.
It has been developed and delivered in partnership with industry, including a focus on nuclear professionalism. After completing the programme, you will be familiar with the nuclear industry and its unique safety culture, which will prepare you to enter the industry or continue in academia.
The MSc offers numerous opportunities to collaborate with partner institutions, such as Institute Polytechnique de Grenoble (INP), École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers (ENSAM), the Materials Ageing Institute (MAI) and Hitachi-GE Internships.
Graduates will leave equipped with a familiarity with the nuclear industry and the specialised nature of its safety culture, and they will be prepared to enter the industry or continue towards further research.
Recent graduates have gone to work in the nuclear industry for employers such as Dounreay, EDF Energy, Nuclear Grads, Frazer Nash and Atkins. Others have continued to PhD study, including within the Interface Analysis Centre and the Solid Mechanics Research Group at the University of Bristol.
