Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
The nuclear industry includes some of the largest and most complex infrastructure programmes in the UK today, in both construction of new facilities and decommissioning of old.
The application of Systems Engineering in the UK nuclear industry is in its infancy, but it is rapidly gathering momentum as sponsors including DECC, NDA and Sellafield Ltd understand the benefits that a systematic approach can deliver.
Particular areas where Systems Engineering can deliver benefits to the nuclear industry include:
The nuclear industry is at risk of losing vast amounts of technical knowledge in the coming years as the nuclear engineering population ages (Sellafield Sites Capability Plan) but Systems Engineering will help to ensure that this knowledge is retained, reused and readily accessible.
A Systems Engineering approach has helped other industries to deliver projects ‘right first time’ with cost and time savings and we are supporting the nuclear industry to achieve these same benefits.
