Get an insight into the world of nuclear marine engineering with Babcock – the organisation that keeps the Ministry of Defence’s fleet of submarines and warships fit for action. You’ll not only learn the ins and outs of its Marine and Technology division where vessels are refitted and maintained, but stay in a military establishment and take part in workshops with the pros. What’s more, with its low-carbon emissions, nuclear power will play a key part in the UK’s future energy policies – discover the training you need to forge a career in these fields.
(Please note that there is an approx 45 minutes demonstration in a location where it is required to be a British National to attend. However, if you are not a British National, there will be an alternative approx 45 minutes activity in its place.)
