Masters Nuclear Energy
A new generation of advanced nuclear technologies offer unparalleled power, speed and scalability to dramatically accelerate the transition to a low or even post-carbon energy landscape. At the same time, innovations in waste management have dramatically reduced risk and negative impact on the environment.
Experts across the globe coincide on the potential of nuclear energy in the fight against climate change. In fact, the four most promising pathways that could limit global warming by 1.5°C by 2050 include nuclear energy.
However, to drive innovation and accelerate safe and effective deployment, we now have an urgent need for a new generation of engineers – change leaders who have the big-picture understanding, the world-class technical skills, the entrepreneurial tools and the innovation mindset to fully leverage this opportunity. To overcome the challenges. And to play a critical role in forging a post-carbon future.
The Master’s in Nuclear Energy is your fast track to a world-class career at the cutting edge of innovation in the global energy transition.
