The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.
The career outlook is exceptionally bright for graduates from Energy Engineering masters studies. Engineers with knowledge in energy technologies are critically needed to implement and develop infrastructures of the future.
Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

MPhil in Nuclear Energy
The MPhil in Nuclear Energy recognises that though the prospects for nuclear even after Fukushima are now better than they have been for twenty years, nuclear works in a market for energy technologies and has no special right to be developed. The political, economic and social context for nuclear power is as important as the technical merits of the designs of reactors and systems.
Nuclear technology is challenging because it is still relatively new being less than 70 years since the first controlled chain reaction. Also, it is challenging because of the multi-disciplinary nature of problems that often involve physics, materials and engineering at the same time.... [-]
