Electrical, Electronic and Control Engineering with Nuclear at University Centre Somerset - Bridgwater & Taunton College - UCAS

Course summary

This course is one of two Nuclear degrees available at UCS, the other being Mechanical Engineering with Nuclear. The multi award-winning National College for Nuclear @BTC has truly dedicated state-of-the-art facilities including a reactor simulator and virtual reality training environment and will provide tomorrow’s engineers with high-tech, specialist training to support the nuclear industry. Working with our industrial partners such as, EDF Energy, AWE, Cavendish Nuclear, Magnox and MoD ensure the training and education provides a world-class experience that develops the skills needed in this high profile, technical and demanding sector. These partnerships allow you to gain technical knowledge and real practical experience, along with behavioural and personal skills, required for your future career. These are acquired through a mix of learning in the workplace, learning through the National College for Nuclear and the opportunity to practise and embed new skills in a real-world context. Upon successful completion of the Degree and curtain conditions fulfilled, EDF have offered our Graduates guaranteed interviews for their highly regarded and sought-after Graduate scheme. This programme is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Modules are taught covering a range of electrical and control engineering topics, alongside nuclear specific modules. These are taught in seminar-style classroom and workshop settings, in a mix of face-to-face and online study. Plus, specialist Guest Speakers from the industry to enhance your knowledge and understanding of the sector. Mathematics is embedded throughout, rather than taught as a separate module. Modules may include:

  • Nuclear Science, Materials, and Design
  • Solid Mechanics
  • Thermofluidic Dynamics
  • Electromechanical Systems Engineering
  • Electrical Supply and Machines
  • Electromechanical Systems and Design
  • Electromechanical Systems Analysis
  • Advanced Nuclear Science and Project Management
  • Electronic Systems
  • Electronic Control Systems Design
  • Industrial Nuclear Science and Technology
  • Nuclear Project Dissertation.

Assessment method

This course is delivered on a modular block basis, completing 4 modules per year (if full-time) of 5 weeks each, following a typical academic year. There may be opportunities for residential trips during the course, which will require separate payment of fees.
