Physics with Nuclear Technology degree offered at the University of the West of Scotland develops your understanding of the fundamentals of physics as a core science, and will build your knowledge and professional skills to prepare you for a career in any area of physics, including industrial applications and academic research.
As the course has a focus on nuclear technology, you will be prepared for a career in the nuclear power industry, or in the use of nuclear technology in the healthcare sector.
Nuclear technology has far-reaching applications for our world; in medical imaging, environmental monitoring, radioactive dating, and nuclear energy generation. Nuclear physics and radiation detection are also prerequisites in conducting research in nuclear and particle physics at large laboratories such as CERN, the European organisation for Nuclear Research.
There is significant worldwide investment in the nuclear industry, which means job opportunities are plentiful. High demand for physics graduates – combined with your specialist knowledge in nuclear technology – enhances your employability in the nuclear energy sector, and nuclear medical imaging.
Graduates have gone on to work in roles including Nuclear Engineer, Nuclear Safety Consultant, Nuclear Waste Advisor and Radiological Consultant.
