A collaborative agreement has been signed which will support and develop undergraduate engineering courses.

The University and the National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL), a nuclear technology services provider,  will work together to develop joint projects in the area of nuclear engineering and measurement and analysis across a wide range of nuclear topics covering both fundamental and applied research as well as supporting education, skills and training activities.

Professor Ieuan Owen, from the School of Engineering said: “The University is delighted to be partnering with NNL. Our strengths in Engineering and Nuclear Physics provide a good foundation to support the NNL and to underpin this vital technical base in the North West.”

The collaboration agreement coincides with the appointment of NNL’s Chief Engineer Richard Taylor, as a visiting professor at the University and Dr Simon Dumbill as NNL Research Fellow (Post Irradiation Examination) linked to the University.
