With the current need to reduce emissions that can lead to climate change, and the ever increasing demand for energy, nuclear power is seen as an essential element of our global portfolio of energy production technologies. There is a resurgence in the demand for mechanical engineers with specialist knowledge of the requirements of the nuclear industry. This programme provides you with such knowledge.
The course is based solidly on the foundations of Mechanical Engineering followed by more specialist topics relating directly to the nuclear power industry. Project work is an important feature of the course as it develops essential skills required to succeed in industry, and gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your imagination and flair.

Leeds graduates are actively recruited by a wide range of prestigious companies. As an engineer in the nuclear industry, you might be responsible for designing the next generation of nuclear power plant, be required to run a nuclear power station safely and productively, or you may be involved in fuel reprocessing, waste management, decommissioning of old nuclear power stations or radiological protection and safety.
AAA at A-level including Mathematics (and preferably physics), excluding general studies and critical thinking.
Engineering Diploma Grade A (plus A or above in A-Level Mathematics).
IB: 37 points overall, with 18 points at higher level to include 5 points in higher level mathematics.
English language requirements: A pass at GCSE level in English Language (grade C or above). If English is not your first language, you are required to provide evidence of proficiency in English and you will need to meet our English Language minimum requirements.
All undergraduate applications should be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Services (UCAS).
If you are an International (non-EU/EEA or Swiss citizen) applicant who has applied for, or intends to apply for, this course within the Faculty of Engineering and require a student visa to study in the UK then you will require an ATAS certificate.
