The Nuclear Energy Futures CDT is an EPSRC-sponsored Centre for Doctoral Training led by Imperial College London and includes Cambridge University, University of Bristol, The Open University and Bangor University. Help lead a better energy future: apply today.


Drawing on some of the UK's leading universities for nuclear research and innovation and input from global brands in the nuclear industry sector, the CDT’s research portfolio is broad, balanced and complementary. From fission to fusion, component life extension to new technologies, and fuel design to waste management and disposal, we investigate research themes that contribute to the provision of cleaner, safe, secure and cost-effective energy generation.

The balanced research portfolio and emphasis on cohort-building produces graduates with both specialised technical knowledge and an understanding and appreciation of the diverse and interlocking needs of the global nuclear industry. Combining these mindsets is critical to nurturing future leaders.
