Teaching, learning and assessment methods used to enable outcomes to be achieved and demonstrated Lectures, small group teaching, student-led and tutor-led seminars, field visits, guest speaker presentations and case studies, short block courses, and an individual research project leading to a dissertation. All teaching will be carried out at Cambridge. Assessment Assessment will be by examination, coursework (individual and group), class participation, presentations (individual and group) and research project dissertation. Course structures and requirements, special features, modules, credits and awards The programme is only offered as a full-time course. The course normally lasts for 11 months (October to August inclusive) and leads to the award of an MPhil degree. Students are required to study 5 core modules, a double module in Management of Technology and Innovation, 4 elective modules chosen from a wide list of subjects offered by the University of Page 3 of 8

4 Cambridge (UC) and to conduct an individual research project/dissertation (equivalent to 4 modules). Special features of the course are as follows: Many of the staff involved in the presentation of the programme have strong backgrounds in nuclear engineering, science, technology policy and associated subjects, and so the course is firmly rooted in up-to-date research and industrial practice. Teaching is provided by senior figures from the University of Cambridge and will be supplemented by a range of guest speakers from industry. In this way the course is able to reflect current best practice in the field of nuclear energy. The style and form of the taught modules is participative and students work closely in partnership with their tutors, with an emphasis on a multi-disciplinary approach to problem solving. Students have the freedom to compile a combination of elective modules that will allow them to follow a programme which is relevant to their interests and career aspirations whilst remaining within the overall field of nuclear energy. There is strong collaboration with other MPhil programmes, for example with module sharing with the Technology Policy programme which provides a policy and management dimension to the degree. Weekly sessions on transferable skills, particularly those suitable for a research career, will allow students to obtain skills which will help them to carry out background study, plan their time and present their results. Course Structure and Scope Overview Length: 11 months October - August Course structure: Requirements: Ten modules plus a long project and dissertation Michaelmas & Lent Terms: At least four of the six core (16 lectures) subjects including compulsory modules; Either: Two/three electives from a defined range of existing technical modules; Plus two/three electives from a defined range of existing management modules; Or: Four/six electives from a defined range of existing management modules Easter Term: Or: Four/six electives from a defined range of existing technical modules Project/dissertation Page 4 of 8

Management of Quality Management of the quality of the course is the responsibility of the Course Director. Students are encouraged to give immediate verbal feedback to staff teaching on the programme and to the Course Director. Feedback channels are also formally implemented through a Staff- Student Liaison Committee, attended regularly by the student representatives. Students are also asked to complete quantitative and qualitative feedback questionnaires, which address questions on the following issues: Quality of teaching Quality of visual aids and teaching environments Relevance of subject matter Workload Admissions process Relevance to expectations Facilities (study space, IT, library resources etc.) Quality of administrative support Results of questionnaires will be distributed to the relevant teaching staff. A summary of the quantitative feedback results will be discussed by the Staff-Student Liaison Committee and any action points from such discussions will be noted in the minutes and followed up at subsequent meetings. Students will also participate in occasional independent external monitoring and audit of the course aims and objectives. Page 7 of 8

8 The academic content of the programme will be continually reviewed by the Course Director, and strategically reviewed at the end of each year of operation by the whole course. Any significant changes proposed will be considered by the relevant committee within the Department of Engineering. The quality of the programme will also be monitored by an external examiner who will observe aspects of the course operation during the year and attend the annual examiners meeting and submit a report to the Vice Chancellor s Office. Summary of Assessment Regulations In order to obtain a degree students registered for the MPhil in Nuclear Energy will be required to obtain: An average of 60% or greater over the four or six core modules (NE1, NE2, NE3, NE4, NE5, NE6) An average of 60% or greater over six or four elective modules A pass for the Dissertation (60% or greater) Both the taught components and the dissertation must be passed individually to gain an overall pass on the course. Cases of marginal failure (i.e. 55%-59%) in one of the three components of the degree may be redeemed by high performances in the other two elements (at least an average of 70%). The classification of the degree will be awarded as either Pass or Distinction. Students who achieve an exceptional performance (i.e. greater than 75% average in all three components) may be awarded a Distinction. Please note: This specification provides a concise summary of the main features of the programme and the learning outcomes that a typical student might reasonably be expected to achieve and demonstrate if s/he takes full advantage of the learning opportunities that are provided. It follows from the nature of the rapidly evolving subject matter that some course elements may change from year to year to reflect emerging themes in the field of nuclear energy. Page 8 of 8
