Our specialised undergraduate and postgraduate courses are designed to train the next generation of nuclear engineers:
Work Begins on Engineering Department's New Home
Construction has begun on a brand new engineering building at Lancaster University.
The new development will provide additional areas for future growth and recent new specialisms such as nuclear, energy and chemical engineering.
Engineering a better future
The Engineering department at Lancaster is a broad-based engineering centre, with a record of innovative teaching, world-class research and integration with industry.
The department has a friendly, informal and collaborative atmosphere, which supports those who study, work and visit here achieve success.
World-class challenges, world-class research
Engineering research at Lancaster is targeted at world-scale challenges such as decarbonising the electricity supply, protecting against nuclear proliferation and designing next generation electronic systems.
In the 2008 RAE, 100% of research publications were recognised internationally in terms of originality, significance and rigour.
High-quality teaching for tomorrow’s Engineers
Lancaster is consistently ranked in the top-10 UK universities for Engineering (Guardian 2012, Complete University Guide 2012) and we pride ourselves on providing amongst the best student experience in Engineering.
88% of our students were satisfied with the course and 95% went on to work or further study after their degree
Business and industry
Engineering at Lancaster has strong links with industry at all levels. Through its knowledge exchange team, Lancaster Product Development Unit (LPDU).
We have resource including physical resources, academics, students and engineers to address problems and help industry exploit opportunities.

The confirmation of the existence of the Higgs boson by the LHC is far from the end for high energy physics. The next step will be an upgrade to the LHC to increase its luminosity by a factor of 10 to allow physicists to probe the mysterious world of supersymmetry and dark matter. But the LHC can only take us so far.
Part-time industry-based courses
Our part-time Industry-based safety engineering courses are specifically aimed at mature students holding responsible positions in high-hazard industries - particularly the nuclear and aerospace sectors.
MSc-by-Research scholarships in engineering
The Department of Engineering at Lancaster University invites applications from exceptional graduates to study for one-year MSc-by-research degrees. Read more
Next Generation Nuclear Centre for Doctoral Training
Engineering at Lancaster is a full Partner in the new EPSRC Next Generation Nuclear Centre for Doctoral Training which provides outstanding young nuclear engineers and scientists with intensive, broad-based training in collaboration with industrial companies, equipping them to take up senior roles within industry.
Continuing professional development
Several of our postgraduate MSc modules are now available as stand-alone CPD courses.
