In September 2021 Australia, the US and the UK created a trilateral partnership which has earmarked a significant amount of investment into building and maintaining nuclear-powered submarines.
With an estimated 8,000 jobs to be created around the industry, completing a Nuclear major will have a huge impact on your employability and future career, with Flinders University's close relationship with BAE and the ASC helping our graduates be in the pole position to make the most of these amazing opportunities.
Coupled with our strength in Advanced Manufacturing, graduates from Flinders will be able to help drive forward all the aspects of the growing industry in South Australia - from digital component design and industrial 3D printing processes, to monitoring safety levels, modelling outputs, keeping workers safe, and even using VR to experiment with how all the chemical, physical and material parts interact.
Studying the Nuclear Major at Flinders University will also give you access to our award-winning Work Integrated Learning (WIL) program, giving you real-world industry experience and leaving you completely ready to start your new career!
Upon completion, you will graduate with a Flinders Bachelor Degree in Engineering or Science with a nuclear engineering major and also a University Certificate in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Rhode Island.
