Job Details

The Nuclear Technology Education Consortium (NTEC) was established in 2005 following extensive consultations with the UK nuclear sector, including industry, regulators, the Ministry of Defence, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, government departments and the Cogent Sector Skills Council. The seven UK universities and higher education institutions in the Consortium provide flexible postgraduate training for the nuclear sector with the breadth and format of the training designed to meet the UK’s projected nuclear skills requirements in decommissioning and clean-up, reactor technology and fusion.

NTEC comprises the Universities of Birmingham, Central Lancashire, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield and the Nuclear Department, Navy Command. Together they offer a postgraduate-level master’s degree in Nuclear Science and Technology which is delivered in both directly taught and distance learning formats. Students register with the university of their choice (Manchester or Sheffield) and visit other members of the consortium to attend their selected course units.

Course accreditation is provided by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Energy Institute (EI), and the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3). The NTEC programme is also the first nuclear master’s to be endorsed by the Nuclear Institute (NI).

The course is designed to create a generation of nuclear engineers and scientists who will have the skills to secure a sustainable and safe future for nuclear energy and the nuclear industry. It is also ideal for industry professionals who wish to extend their knowledge and skills with individual NTEC course units being available as standalone Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses.
