Nuclear Engineering and Shipping
For the second year running the Engineering Department at Lancaster University in the UK is pleased to
invite applications from excellent graduate engineers to study for Masters-by research qualifications.
This programme, sponsored by the Sir John Fisher Foundation, provides generous support to the most
promising young engineers of their generation to complement their undergraduate degrees with a
research-focussed MSc of the highest quality. The programme invites applications for up to four
studentships based on engineering research projects in the nuclear engineering and/or shipping fields
for a study period of twelve months, full-time. These research studentships are conducted in close
collaboration with industry where possible.
To be eligible for consideration you must hold an upper-second degree in an Engineering, Applied
Physics, Chemical Engineering or related science-based discipline, or be able to demonstrate significant
prior experiential learning in addition to your academic achievements. Industrial experience would be a
significant advantage, especially in the industrial sectors of interest as would a demonstrable ability to
pursue independent, academic research.
Lancaster Product Development Unit (LPDU), the Outreach Team of the Engineering Department at
Lancaster University are currently offering a number of MSc (by Research) studentship opportunities.
Focussed towards promoting the regional economic growth of the region through effective and timely
knowledge transfer (KT), the successful candidates will become key members of the
Department’s/Unit’s research student cohort. The MSc (by Research) Programme is an innovative
higher-degree qualification with no taught element, encouraging students to explore various ways in
which real-world problems can be overcome.

online via the postgraduate link from the Lancaster University homepage.
