A new concept in postgraduate-level training for the nuclear sector has been developed by NTEC (Nuclear Technology Education Consortium). The breadth and format of the training is designed to meet the UK's projected nuclear skills requirements in decommissioning and clean-up, reactor technology, fusion and nuclear medicine. Format of study includes MSc, PG Diploma, PG Certificate and CPD.

Consortium Members

NTEC comprises of the Universities of Birmingham, Central Lancashire, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield and the Nuclear Department, Navy Command. Together these institutions represent more than 90% of the nuclear postgraduate teaching expertise residing in the UK's universities and research institutes.

Taught Programme

Individual subjects are presented in 'short course' taught format, providing excellent access to the programme for engineers and managers in full-time employment who wish to advance their skill and knowledge base. The core of each module is one week's direct teaching at the institution delivering the module.

Distance Learning

9 modules are available in distance learning format. Each module contains the same syllabus as its counterpart delivered by taught teaching programme, has the same learning outcomes and are delivered once per annum at a fixed time in order to facilitate the concept of a 'virtual classroom'. The modules are available online for students to study for a period of 4 months.
