Outstanding Destinations for Nuclear Engineering Students - Bridgwater & Taunton College

At BTC, we have the highest expectations for our learners, who work relentlessly to achieve the best possible grades and secure sought after apprenticeships. This year saw all the students progress to exciting destinations after a successful final year at College.

Students study nuclear engineering at the National College for Nuclear (NCfN), based at the Cannington campus. This state-of-the-art nuclear training facility includes a virtual reality environment, reactor simulator, computer-equipped training rooms, recreation and collaboration spaces, as well as sports facilities and accommodation. It’s the perfect launch pad for students to progress onto some of the very best apprenticeship programmes in the country. These include Digital Engineering with Bylor, Nuclear Operative with Magnox and EDF Nuclear Engineering Degree Apprenticeship.

Other learners from this year’s cohort have ventured further afield, pursuing careers in the Royal Navy, and even going on to study at universities across the UK. Course Leader Ryan Barnet said,

These students have set the bar high and I’m excited to see where our future cohorts of nuclear engineers will go.

Jack Lee joined BTC from Crispin School to study Engineering, and is progressing to the EDF Nuclear Degree Apprenticeship. He said,

The NCfN and Level 3 Extended Diploma in Engineering provided me with the perfect platform to develop my skills and professional behaviours. The expansive course covered numerous engineering principles and key practices, that enhanced my ability and persona. I obtained my apprenticeship placement due to my high achievement and the consistent support provided by both my lecturers and tutors.

I would strongly recommend this course to all students who take an interest in engineering maths and physics, as it’s tailored perfectly to these areas. Supported by the excellent facilities, the NCfN is the perfect working environment for maximum development and integration into the Nuclear sector.
