Nuclear Security

The nuclear industry continues to provide a significant proportion of the UK's energy needs over the next ten years and this percentage increases as new nuclear power stations come on stream at the end of this decade and beyond; UCLan has developed strong relationships with nuclear employers which include Sellafield Ltd, National Nuclear Laboratory, BAE Systems at Barrow and Westinghouse Ltd; as a result, the course is uniquely designed and is delivered from a UCLan campus, offering employees already working within the sector and assisting employer led provisions, a flexible programme to fit in around their work patterns; access to those people from the general engineering sector is also being encouraged.
