IThe University of Birmingham is a consortium member of the UK Nuclear Engineering Doctoral Training Centre led by the University of Manchester and Imperial College. The scheme offers a fully funded EngD in Nuclear Engineering over four years, incorporating taught elements with the research project, which is undertaken in industry. In all, you will spend 75% of your time as a research engineer at your sponsoring company, not just working in the nuclear industry but undertaking research that pushes back its boundaries.
Projects could involve research into decommissioning, reactor materials, waste disposal or reactor technology. As with most modern research these EngDs are highly interdisciplinary. Applications are encouraged from a wide range of backgrounds, especially from those with degrees in Aerospace, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Materials, Mechanical Engineering and Physics.
