The consortium is led by The University of Manchester in partnership with Imperial College London and includes the universities of Birmingham, Lancaster, Leeds, Sheffield, Strathclyde and Surrey. Each of the universities has capabilities and a recognised track record in one (or more) of the research themes being offered which are: Reactor Technology, Waste Management, Decommissioning, Materials, Socio-economic aspects and Safety Systems.
The Engineering Doctorate Centre in Nuclear Engineering was formed in September 2006, and is growing year on year.
The primary objective of the Nuclear EngD is to provide outstanding young nuclear Research Engineers with intensive, broadly based training in collaboration with industrial companies so that they are equipped to take up senior roles within the nuclear industry. In addition to obtaining a high quality qualification, the Research Engineers will gain experience of working in an industrial research and development environment. The four year programme involves the Research Engineer being based within an industrial company in the UK.
