Year one is largely dedicated to foundational studies which will put students in a position to understand more advanced subjects later on. Modules will include the fundamentals of material science, classical (non-quantum) mechanics and relativity, and an introduction to transport phenomena.
Here you will study more advanced topics, including nuclear physics and fracture, fatigue and corrosion. This will in turn prepare you for your third year of studies, and the most advanced subjects in the program.
In what is typically your last year in the BSc program, you’ll study very specialized topics such as advanced nuclear physics, reactor design and the detection of and protection from radiation. These courses are developed in partnership with industry influencers, and designed with immediate placement of graduates in mind.
