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.
