About

Supported by the Royal Academy of Engineering, this MSc in Civil Engineering Structures (Nuclear Power Plants) at City, University of London is the only accredited course in the UK in this critical area.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

This MSc in Civil Engineering Structures (Nuclear Power Plants) at City, University of London  is for students interested in the structural aspects of nuclear power plants and the broader field of nuclear energy.

Objectives

In this programme, you will study how to design, evaluate, and analyse structural systems, with a special focus on Nuclear Power Plants. You will learn all the principles used for the design of buildings, bridges, special structures and in particular nuclear containment structures.

The emphasis on nuclear structures is a response to the skill shortage reported by employers working in this sector. The UK has recently committed to a long-term nuclear new-build programme that is forecast to generate more than 40,000 jobs, yet no specialised training is available in this area. The programme will therefore provide you with a degree that distinguishes you in the market.

The programme is offered on a one-year full-time or two-year part time basis to allow you maximum flexibility.

Career prospects

This programme is for students interested in the structural aspects of nuclear power plants. Your career will take you to the broader field of nuclear energy. The types of roles we would expect our graduates to achieve are: an on-site engineer or as a design office engineer, building designing or constructing new plants or evaluating and maintaining existing plants or decommissioning plants at the end of their life cycle. You could also go to the research arena conducting innovative research in the area of nuclear science at research labs or in academia.

Accreditation

This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree. the JBM website for further information.
